Kent State University Orchestra
Welcome to the Kent State University Orchestra!
Charles Latshaw, Director
The Kent State University Orchestra is one of the major performance ensembles in the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music. It is composed of graduate and undergraduate music majors, as well as talented students in many other majors.
Each year, the orchestra performs a wide range of repertoire from the Baroque period to the present. The orchestra performs a Subscription Series of four performances, as well as the annual Evening with the Orchestra event. Soloists appearing with the orchestra include members of our performance faculty and winners of the annual Student Concerto Competition. Kent State choral ensembles often collaborate with the orchestra in the presentation of major works for chorus and orchestra. The Kent State Opera joins the orchestra in presenting a major opera each year.
