The Bethany College / Lindsborg Community Orchestra is a full symphonic orchestra comprised of students, community members, and faculty. This group performs four concerts each year. Many of the orchestra members are members of the “Messiah” and “St. Matthew Passion” orchestra during the Messiah Festival of the Arts.
Bethany College Chamber Orchestra
The chamber orchestra consists mainly of strings but is occasionally augmented by winds. This ensemble explores repertoire spanning several centuries and is expected to perform twice each year. Many opportunities for solo playing exist in this ensemble.
There are many varieties of chamber music available at Bethany College. Students play repertoire ranging from standard quartet literature to church music and even gig music. The possibility of earning money is a major incentive as well! Chamber groups are expected to rehearse on their own in preparation for a weekly coaching session by one of our faculty.
