Within a four-year period, the Stetson University Chamber Orchestra plays a representative cross-section of the string orchestra repertoire from the 17th century to the present day. This includes baroque composers such as Bach, Corelli, Geminiani, Handel, Locatelli, Purcell, Telemann and Vivaldi. Music is played on modern instruments using baroque playing techniques. Core repertoire includes works by Mozart, the demanding serenades of Dvorak, Suk and Tchaikovsky, and works by Arensky, Barber, Elgar, Greig, Nielsen, Morfydd Owen, Sibelius, Vaughan Williams, Warlock and Grace Williams.
The orchestra is committed to the performance of contemporary music both by internationally known composers as well as members of the Stetson University student body.
In 2023 the orchestra went on a highly successful concert tour of Italy with stops in Lucca, Florence, Venice, and Rome.
