Symphony Orchestra
Dr. Cullan Lucas, Conductor

Orchestral Studies at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse consists of the Symphony Orchestra, and four chamber music ensembles: the Chancellor’s String Quartet, the Hoeschler String Quartet, the Cordeiro Woodwind Quintet and the Symphonic Brass Quintet.


The Symphony Orchestra at UWL is committed to performing relevant, contemporary literature reflecting the diversity of its members while also creating moving performances of masterworks of the orchestral repertoire. This ensemble is open to all university students by audition as well as community members. Its goal is to provide students and the surrounding community with rich and rewarding experiences through at least two concerts each semester and often participates in collaborative efforts across the community. The Symphony Orchestra rehearses Monday and Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in CFA 56.
