The William and Mary Symphony Orchestra, which was founded in 1932, has as its mission the preparation and performance of a wide range of orchestral music at a high artistic level. The Orchestra generally presents at least four concerts each academic year, including a Halloween "pops" concert, a concerto competition in the spring, and end-of-semester concerts in December and April. In past seasons, the ensemble has performed orchestral masterworks by such composers as Bartok, Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms, Chadwick, Dvorak, Mahler, Ravel, Rossini, and Tchaikovsky. The orchestra has also collaborated with the Concert Choir to perform major choral works such as the Mozart Requiem and Haydn Te Deum. The ensemble is featured on a CD released by the Department of Music during the 2005-06 academic year.
