MPO & MSO Music Directors will select repertoire for each group unless the group has a piece of music in mind that is manageable for all of the students in the ensemble by the time of the Chamber Concert. Selections must be chosen with the agreement of all of the students in each group, and requests must be made to the group's Music Director before a week prior to the first rehearsal. If specific request is not made, repertoire will be selected by the Music Directors.
Depending on your instrument, your acceptance may be declined due to an insufficient number of students in the same instrumental field. In order to avoid this, applicants can invite other musicians from in or out of MPO to participate in the Chamber Program with them. Please also be advised that some groups (mainly percussion) may be charged a small fee for instrument rental. Currently, MPO has available: 1 Glockenspiel, 1 Snare, 1 Bass Drum, 1 Tam-Tam, 1 Xylophone, 1 Tambourine, 3 Timpani (set), 1 Cymbal, and 1 Triangle.
