CBA Symphony Orchestra

The CBA Symphony Orchestra Committee is designed for all CBA members who are interested in participating in an orchestra and performing as an orchestra or in smaller chamber ensembles. Rehearsals are held every Wednesday, 6:15-8:00 p.m., at the Daley Center, and public performances are scheduled from September through May. Compact disc recordings are made of selected performances. Orchestra members must be CBA members in good standing with the Association. Participants pay annual dues of $75 to help defray costs including a professional conductor, sheet music, and other expenses. 


Auditions are not required, but openings in some sections may be limited due to musical staffing requirements. In general, the Orchestra can usually accept additional string players and low brass players. Openings for woodwind instruments are very limited (please inquire). Please direct all inquires via email to
