Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra
Amusement & Entertainment
Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra is a 501c3 organization founded and based in Beloit, Wisconsin.
We are a small string orchestra that focuses on performing during the summer, and providing music education to underprivileged young people in the area.
Our performances feature music ranging from classical masters to jazz to string arrangements of popular music such as Adele or the musical Wicked.
We often spotlight local students, composers and musicians as guest artists, and many of our venues are outdoors, providing a fun, family-friendly experience.
Our youth programs include the Nie Young Artist Scholarship Competition for students of bowed-string instruments and piano, typically held in March each year.
The competition features three age divisions, with cash awards given to first and second place winners in each division of each category (string or piano,) and winners are featured on a special concert in April. They also are occasionally offered the opportunity to perform with the orchestra on summer concerts.
In July each year we offer our Youth Summer String Camp for five days. Area children studying string instruments are invited to participate, and provided the opportunity to study and perform with members of the orchestra, as well as a featured guest clinician.
