Our orchestra enjoys performances by local musicians at every level of education, from high school students to Professors of Music at the local University. Our standards remain firm, and we only accept the best! We also welcome regional performers, as well as many guest conductors and soloists. These are current Marquette Symphony Orchestra musicians.
