MUSP 016 - Wheaton Sinfonietta

The Wheaton Sinfonietta provides instrumentalists the opportunity to perform advanced chamber repertoire requiring independent playing (one player per part), including modern and contemporary music, while also learning the practical, organizational, artistic, and administrative skills needed to run a professional musical ensemble. Following the model of collaborative professional chamber ensembles, student members will work collaboratively with each other and the professor/conductor to develop programming themes, research and choose repertoire, attend to logistical concerns, organize off-campus performances, and create promotional strategies and materials when appropriate. Outreach and community engagement work will form a key component of the course - including creating programs, performing for various types of audiences, and engaging directly with listeners through public speaking and by developing multi-media resources to support these events.
