Kansas State Orchestra

Kansas State University Orchestra

Students from all majors are invited to audition for the Kansas State University Orchestra. The orchestra of nearly 80 students performs five concerts a year in McCain Auditorium under the leadership of Dr. David Littrell. The orchestra frequently collaborates with theatre, dance, and choir, and plays a mix of modern selections and classical favorites.


K-State Orchestra Conductor

Dr. David Littrell will be retiring from K-State after 31 years in May 2018. He conducted the K-State Orchestra from 1990 to 2018, by far the longest tenure of any K-State Orchestra conductor. A conductor/cello professor search is in progress, so information for the 2018-2019 season will be updated during Summer 2018.
