The Asbury University Orchestra, directed by Professor Nathan Miller, is a dynamic and vibrant part of campus life. The orchestra seeks to engage the community by playing a wide range of musical styles in a variety of venues to connect great music to as many people as possible. Since the fall of 2014, the orchestra has performed music by the likes of Beethoven, Bach, Holst, Mozart, and Copland among other classical composers as well as music from movie soundtracks like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, and the video games like Zelda and Mario Brothers. You can find the orchestra performing in places like Hughes Auditorium, Wesley Village Retirement Center, as well as in the Student Center to an audience of students on couches. This fall the orchestra will perform movements from the fifth symphonies of Mozart, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky, as well as a full Bach cantata with the Asbury Chorale.
