String Ensembles

About the String Ensembles

The String Program at Campbellsville University started in 1996 as a humble community ensemble and has grown to a full-size orchestra comprised almost entirely of CU students and faculty.  The program has expanded to include a string chamber ensemble and several string quartets and trios.

The University Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. J. Robert Gaddis, performed by invitation at the 2004 Kentucky Music Educators Association In-Service Conference.  The String Chamber Ensemble won an invitation to the same conference in 2007 and again in 2014.  Members of both of these ensembles participate in the Kentucky Inter-Collegiate Orchestra.
