Frost Symphony Orchestra

Request Info

The Frost Symphony Orchestra is made up of 80-100 members of the undergraduate and graduate schools of the Frost School of Music. Since 2019 it has been under the direction of internationally recognized conductor, Gerard Schwarz. All of the string majors play in the ensemble and the woodwind, brass, and percussion assignments are made by the principal faculty. Each season’s repertoire is comprised of the major works of the past as well as new and less played masterpieces. During the 2020-2021 season, the orchestra will perform nine concerts in the acoustically outstanding Gusman Concert Hall on the University of Miami campus. The repertoire for 20-21 includes symphonies by Brahms, Mahler, Beethoven, Prokofiev, and Mozart; concert works by Stravinsky, Bartok, Colman, Goosens, Strauss, Debussy, and Ravel and concertos by Beethoven (all of his works for piano and orchestra), and Chopin.

Frost Symphony Orchestra activities are generously supported by the Messinger Symphony Orchestra Fund.
