The Drexel University Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra comprised of strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. The members of the group have the opportunity to further their individual and ensemble playing skills through weekly rehearsals and a concert performance at the end of each quarter. The orchestra's repertoire consists of works from the standard orchestral repertoire, and has included symphonies, suites and overtures by Beethoven, Wagner, Mozart, Bizet, Bach, Brahms, and Mahler.

Performance Scholarships are available for string players for the Drexel University Orchestra (woodwind, brass and percussion scholarships for orchestra are provided through the Concert Band). Auditions for the Drexel University Orchestra and scholarship recommendation will be held during Accepted Students Weekends April.
