Symphony Orchestra

The University Symphony Orchestra has a long performance tradition of providing quality programming for students who are preparing to enter the world of orchestral performance. Under the direction of Professor Michael DiGiacinto, students perform professional level works and present four full-length concerts each year that showcase the entire orchestra.

Music majors focusing on string performance must participate in Symphony Orchestra as a major ensemble. Contact Michael DiGiacinto for more audition information.

String Week

San José State University’s Second Annual String Week is coming up! All middle and high school string players are invited to join us for a series of fun and educational musical events.

Beginning Thursday, April 4, students will participate in ensembles and master classes. High school students will also have the opportunity to receive one-on-one instruction from an SJSU professor. The week ends on Tuesday, April 9 with a Side-by-Side Symphony Orchestra concert, conducted by Professor Michael DiGiacinto.

New to this year’s line-up is our Guitar Ensemble, directed by Professor Steven Lin, whose students will learn and perform ensemble repertoire for the classical guitar.
