Judson Civic Orchestra

Civic Orchestra

The Judson Civic Orchestra is truly a community-university cooperative endeavor that brings together professionals, amateurs and students for performances at Judson University's Herrick Chapel. Our mission is to provide a training ground for music students at Judson, while providing a musical, artistic, and social outlet for members of the community. At the same time, it seeks to enrich the campus and the greater Elgin community through musical offerings.
