The Bethel Chamber Orchestra performs works of the standard orchestra literature spanning from the baroque to contemporary periods. It performs both a fall and spring concert, participates in the Festival of Christmas and Classics in the Great Hall concerts, and tours regionally. It’s open by audition to strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussionists.
The Bethel Philharmonic Orchestra is a Bethel community orchestra comprised of members who share a passion for glorifying God through great symphonic music. It rehearses once a week and performs one major symphonic concert each semester.
Bethel Chamber Ensembles provide an opportunity to develop self-expression through the discovery and performance of string chamber music. Solo winds and pianists may also participate by audition. They meet once a week for private coaching and require an additional weekly non-coached rehearsal.
