UWEC University Symphony Orchestra
The University Symphony Orchestra is a sixty member student ensemble performing the symphonic repertoire of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. Under the direction of Nobuyoshi Yasuda, the ensemble presents an on-campus concert each semester, performs annually in a tour to high schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota, performs with the Symphonic Choir, accompanies one fully-staged opera or musical play each year, and each spring is one of the featured ensembles at UW-Eau Claire’s nationally-acclaimed Viennese Ball.
Concert repertoire has included Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 & 8, Mahler's Symphony No. 3 & 5, Stravinsky's Firebird, "Petrouchka" and "The Right of Spring" in addition to standard repertoire of symphonies by Beethoven, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky.
Under Yasuda’s direction, the University Symphony Orchestra has been recognized by two invitations--in 1992 and again in 1995--to perform at the annual conference of the Wisconsin Music Education Association. In April, 1996, Maestro Ejii Oue, conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, directed the Symphony in an open rehearsal of Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony.
