The Milligan College Orchestra was founded in 1999 as an expansion of the string program at Milligan. Besides providing an excellent ensemble experience for Milligan students, the orchestra has broadened into the community to include students from East Tennessee State University and area high schools, as well as Milligan alumni and members from the community.
The Milligan College Orchestra performs throughout East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and collaborates frequently with area ensembles, including the Johnson City Civic Chorale, the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra, and the East Tennessee Children’s Choir. The orchestra also champions new works and has performed the world premiers of three pieces including Three Genres by John Grubb and Genesis by Kenton Coe.
