Department of Music and Theatre

North State Symphony

An exceptional orchestra comprised of students (by audition only), community members, and professional players. The NSS offers the highest quality orchestral music to the North State region.

The orchestra performs in Laxson Auditorium on the CSU, Chico campus as well as in Redding's Cascade Theatre, and occasionally elsewhere in the region. It provides qualified students with experience in orchestral playing at a professional level, and audiences with performances that have been called "dazzling" and "flawless " by critics. Contact the executive director for information on auditions and membership.
