University of Aberdeen Symphony Orchestra

University of Aberdeen Symphony Orchestra

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 Spring 2024 concert will be at St Machar’s Cathedral in Old Aberdeen on Wednesday 20 March. The programme includes Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Overture, Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, and a concerto with a student soloist.

How to join: A limited number of places will be available for the second half session. Auditions will be held on Friday 19 January. For more information and to sign up for an audition, please click here.

Rehearsals: We rehearse every Monday evening from 7.00 to 9.30 in King’s Pavilion, starting on 22 January. 

Contact details: If you have any questions about the Orchestra, please email our conductor, Professor Chris Collins.
