Judson 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.

How do I join?

Interested Judson University students should audition and then register for MUS 143, Orchestra. Music Performance Scholarships are available to Judson students, provided that the student or prospective student auditions successfully. Community musicians, Judson students and Judson prospective students should contact Dr. Robert Kania, Music Chair, at 847-628-1115 or rkania@judsonu.edu for further information about auditions and scholarships.

Community membership is open by audition to community musicians who are at least a freshman in high school.

When and where does the orchestra rehearse?

The orchestra rehearses Monday evenings during the fall and spring semesters at 7:00 p.m. in the lower level of Herrick Chapel.

The Orchestra typically performs a concert in November and April of each year, as well as participates in the Christmas Concert of Worship in early December, and the Spring Concert of Worship in late April.
