Olin Conductorless Orchestra
About the Orchestra:
The Olin Conductorless Orchestra is one of Olin's oldest groups on campus. Founded as a chance to play orchestral music the "Olin" way, OCO is a student-run group that picks its own pieces and runs its own rehearsals with minimal outside aid. The orchestra has played Holst's Jupiter to Tchaikovsky's String Serenade and everything in between! OCO gives musicians at Olin an outlet to not only play their instruments, but to also help run rehearsals and make real decisions that impact how the music sounds and feels. The Orchestra strives to help Olin produce engineers that can be positive influences in large group situations through the skills of leadership and strong communication.
How You Can Help:
OCO is looking for support to fund an upcoming trip to Niagara Falls, NY to perform at the American Society for Engineering Education Zone 1 Conference. The orchestra's performance would be a first for the ASEE and OCO's presence at the conference would not only spread Olin's name to more educators, but help to put the OCO on a larger stage than ever before and introduce the "conductorless" concept to engineering educators across the Northeast.
