University Chamber Orchestra

  • Conductor: John Stringer
  • Rehearsals: usually two weekends before the concert

The University Chamber Orchestra performs a variety of repertoire and regularly premieres student commissions. The group is often directed by guest conductors such as Mark Elder, Peter Donohoe, Lionel Friend, Elgar Howarth, Alan Hacker and Jacek Kapszyk.

The Chamber Orchestra has toured extensively, including trips to France, Vienna, Venice, Berlin, and within the UK. The group often takes part in high-profile events. These include the first ever online orchestra coaching session with players from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the BBC symphony and performances of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for wind, joined by players from the Scottish Chamber and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestras.

Membership is by invitation based on the orchestral auditions at the beginning of each academic year.
