About the La Verne Symphony Orchestra
(from the University of La Verne Website)
The La Verne Symphony Orchestra is an exciting, dynamic group of students and community musicians working together to bring symphonic music to the City of La Verne. They cultivate dedication, focus, and a true knowledge of what it means to play music in an orchestra, with an emphasis on a firm foundation in music reading, rhythm, ensemble cohesiveness, and stylistic interpretation.
The La Verne Symphony Orchestra works to create an inspiring, cooperative, and educational environment where students and community members come together to study and perform quality music written by composers from all over the world, fostering the spirit of understanding, discovery, and commitment for the enrichment of themselves and their audiences.
