Goucher College Orchestra (MUS 141)

The Goucher College Orchestra (GCO) is the student orchestra of Goucher College. Membership is open to Goucher students by audition for credit (1.5) or audit. Goucher faculty and staff may also participate, however the orchestra is not a community orchestra. Additional musicians are contracted for dress rehearsals and performances depending on student enrollment and repertoire requirements. GCO performs in the college's Kraushaar Auditorium (one of Baltimore's premier concert venues) in the spring and in the warm acoustic of Goucher's Haebler Memorial Chapel in the fall.

Goucher College Orchestra

Regular rehearsals take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (3:00 - 4:15 pm) in Haebler Memorial Chapel. Goucher students and faculty often appear as soloists and guest conductors in concert. The orchestra performs major literature from the standard repertoire as well as works by advanced Goucher student composers. The orchestra is conducted by Elisa Koehler and is staffed by two student assistants who help with stage management and librarian duties.
