Symphony Orchestra

The University of Manchester Symphony Orchestra is one of the most active and ambitious student orchestras in the country, performing a large range of demanding repertoire in around seven to eight concerts per year. Musicians in the ensemble will have theopportunity to play alongside several concerto soloists as well as in two concerts with the University of Manchester Chorus, performing a range of choral-orchestral works. The orchestra is an auditioned dynamic ensemble, meaning that the positions are allocated by the personnel managers on a concert-by-concert basis according to each player's audition and taking into account their previous performances, as well as their overall improvement over the year.

You can next hear the orchestra at 17:00 on Sunday 29th September in the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall for our Welcome Concert, accompanied by the Fresher's Chorus where our newest music students perform the Sunrise Mass by Ola Gjeilo. The concert will also include Gershwin's An American in Paris, Copland's Clarinet Concerto, and Bernstein's Three Dance Episodes from On The Town.

Tickets available from the Martin Harris Centre Box Office and
