It is an academic requirement either for students whose First Instrument is an orchestral instrument, to play in the UP Symphony Orchestra, and for those who cannot be accommodated in the Orchestra, or who do not audition successfully for inclusion in the Orchestra ,to play in other ensembles as determined by the Music Department. Students will have to play two excerpts (selected by the conductor) during the June and November examination periods as part of their repertoire for the examination, and this will count 10% of the final mark. An 80% attendance of orchestral rehearsals is also expected, and students should be available for the concerts of the Orchestra and ensembles.
