Who We Are

The Concordia Civic Orchestra was reorganized in 2019 under the direction of Professor William Perrine and has since experience substantial growth. The orchestra has gained national recognition in a short period of time, earning Finalist Status in the 2021 and 2023 American Prize competition. The group is open to all Concordia students with advanced experience in playing violin, viola, cello, or string bass. The ensemble is also open to Dual Enrollment students, Guest Students, and members of the Ann Arbor community with advanced playing experience.
