About Us

The orchestra consists of some of the most talented musicians at the university gives wind players from a variety of degree courses the chance to perform in a friendly and high-achieving ensemble. Members are auditioned at the start of the academic year. The orchestra has approximately fifty members and aims to perform three concerts a year.

We rehearse weekly on Monday evenings during term time, from 7 until 9.15pm in Clubs and Socs (Union Building).

We also go on an annual tour with Sinfonietta, the university's chamber orchestra. This takes place during the Easter holiday and recent destinations include Budapest, Cologne and Brussels.
