Comprising instrumentalists from the Music Department and across the University, the Symphony Orchestra is one of Aberdeen’s leading ensembles. We aspire to be a flagship orchestra for the northeast of Scotland, performing a wide range of repertoire including classical and romantic favourites, forgotten masterpieces, and brand new works by living composers. Our first concert this year will be in December and takes the sea as its theme, with a programme including Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides Overture, Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, and Porthor (Singing Sands) by the Welsh composer Mared Emlyn.
How to join: Auditions will be held on Thursday 22 September. For more information and to sign up for an audition, please click here.
