Moody Campus Orchestra

Moody Campus Orchestra

The Moody Campus Orchestra consists of students and faculty members from Moody Bible Institute, and musicians from the local community. Performing a diverse repertoire, the Orchestra plays classical and modern music and arrangements of church music. The Campus Orchestra’s ministry is to share the joy of music and our faith in God through music. Strong community relationships are built and maintained as the orchestra performs in venues including churches and schools locally and beyond.
