The Repertory Orchestra is a full symphonic orchestra that provides intermediate-level students with challenging rehearsal and performance opportunities. This ensemble stresses fundamental technical and musical skills and the improvement of sight-reading abilities. The orchestra usually performs three or four concerts during the year and regularly performs with the Youth Orchestra either at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall or Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood. During the 06-07 and 07-08 seasons, the Repertory Orchestra participated in exchange concerts with the Vermont Youth Philharmonia (from Vermont Youth Orchestra). The orchestra has become a regular guest performer at Albany Pro Musica’s annual High School Choral Festival at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
The Repertory Orchestra also participates in the ESYO fall rehearsal weekend in the Catskill Mountains.
For 2013-14, rehearsals will be held on Tuesday evenings from
7:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. at The Brown School unless otherwise noted.
Entrance auditions are held in June.
