Exhilarating concerts

More information to be released soon...

Welcome to the website of the Durham University Orchestral Society. Our society is made up of some of the best instrumentalists in Durham University, and consists of two orchestras: a full-scale Symphony Orchestra and a smaller 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. Please do come to our next concert to witness not only our passion, but also the culmination of a year of exciting and committed music-making, for yourselves!


Furthermore, explore our website to learn how we are achieving these aims; it is updated frequently with reviews and photographs of past concerts, information about our current members and upcoming concerts, and even how you can get involved as a player, conductor or supporter.


If you have any queries please email orchestral.society@durham.ac.uk where we will be more than happy to assist.
