Exhilarating concerts

More information to be released soon...

Welcome to the website of the Durham University Orchestral Society: Durham’s leading orchestras. Our society is made up of some of the best instrumentalists in Durham University, and comprises two orchestras: a full-scale Symphony Orchestra and an elite Chamber Orchestra. We are unique amongst student orchestras around the country for being an entirely student-run society; each of our members (players, conductors and executive committee members) is a current student at Durham University.


DUOS has three primary aims: to strive for excellence as two of the finest student orchestras in the country; to be the highlight of every member’s university experience; to share our music-making with as many people as possible. We are currently accepting applications for membership to the society in the 2020/21 academic year; if you are interested, please follow the link above!


If you have any queries, questions, comments or concerns, please email me at orchestral.society@durham.ac.uk and I will help you as best as I can!

DUOS President 2020-2021
