Pit Orchestra

The pit orchestra is an ensemble with limited instrumentation that varies each year. The purpose of this ensemble is to accompany actors and vocalists for the department’s fall musical production. Participation in this ensemble is generally by invitation only based on the director’s awareness of student skillsets, as the material is often orchestrated at a professional level appropriate for Broadway instrumentalists.
