Exhilarating concerts

More information to be released soon...

Welcome to 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.


We have three main goals: 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. Now, more so than ever, the safety of our players and of the public is of paramount importance. Recently, we have enjoyed socially-distanced rehearsals and have hosted several professional masterclasses online.


If you have any queries, please email us at orchestral.society@durham.ac.uk and we will endeavour to help you as best as we can!
