String players placed in Symphony Orchestra wishing to participate in Concert Orchestra additionally may request to do so to the Concert Orchestra staff, who will determine placement in conjunction with Professor Noe.

Wind and percussion players must perform an audition for Concert Orchestra, regardless of whether they take the College of Music Wind and Percussion audition for placement in the concert bands and Symphony Orchestra.
