183A: DePauw Chamber Symphony Concert Tour to Japan (off-campus)
The DePauw Chamber Symphony, the elite core of the DePauw University Orchestra, will travel to Japan for a concert performance tour. Of course, purposeful cultural initiatives and interactions will be an opportunity for the DePauw students in the ensemble. The Chamber Symphony, limited to students who have auditioned with Orchestra Director, Orcenith Smith, will rehearse on-campus for 5-7 days before departing to Tokyo and the subsequent concert cities. Prior to departure, we will have sessions related to culture, traditions, and other social aspects presented by Dr. Brockmann and others. Most of the concert repertoire will be rehearsed in first semester during regular University Orchestra rehearsal time. As in the past, we will not need to have extra scheduled rehearsals in first semester. Some of the music will be performed in first semester. A complete itinerary with concerts, sight-seeing, and free time is forthcoming! Students will be changed by a deeper understanding of the responsibilities that can come from performing intently for new audiences and the new knowledge of global citizenship from interacting with this different culture!
