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 the opportunity 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 5pm on Sunday 30th September in the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall for our Welcome Concert, with the Fresher's Chorus where our newest music students perform Poulenc’s eclectic Gloria. The concert will also include Farrenc's solemn overture in E minor; Ibert's florid flute concerto, alongside Marquez’s most popular work.
