Morgantown Community Orchestra

Open to youths, adults and senior citizens

('informal' audition may be requested) The Morgantown Community Orchestra (MCO) is the one of the large music ensembles of the Community Mu sic Program at WVU. It is designed for intermediate and advanced level players in the community and region, who wish to share and develop their artistic talents while enjoying music-making in a friendly orchestral setting.

The repertoire is carefully chosen to accommodate the ensemble’s need for music with a wide range of styles and difficulty. Membership is open to everyone from youth, to non-music and music major students, to adults and senior citizens throughout the greater-Morgantown community.

Room 200B, Creative Arts Center

The Morgantown Community Orchestra welcomes intermediate and advanced level players who wish to share and develop their artistic talents while enjoying music-making in a friendly orchestral setting. For potential new members, an informal trial sit-in with the orchestra may be recommended, followed by a chat with the director, because repertoire is carefully chosen to accommodate the ensemble’s need for music with a wide range of styles and difficulty. Acceptance will be based on musicianship and suitability to the program. We have the right to refuse membership based on the above criteria.


Notes to Parents of young MCO members:
Although the Creative Arts Center is a safe environment, parents are advised to accompany young children to and from rehearsals and to not leave them unattended for any length of time. The Director cannot be expected to be responsible for waiting around after rehearsals to keep watch on young children.
