    2020-2021 Season Repertoire [Unfortunately there will be no safe way to be able to rehearse and perform in these times. The following is a wishlist of repertoire we would have performed together as an orchestra. This fall the Cornell orchestras will go online and explore ways to be a great orchestra. But performing in person will not be one of them]
