About

SUSO is a friendly and exciting student led orchestra made up of enthusiastic players of all abilities who enjoy playing music together!

This semester SUSO will be rehearsing completely online via Zoom and then we will put together a series of online pre-recorded pieces. As usual we are looking forward to playing a large selection of music, in a variety of styles, to suit everyone’s tastes and instruments.

Each rehearsal involves playing through some of our pieces together to a backing track followed by sectionals work and then our weekly social. We hope that this will both allow us to feel like a proper, connected orchestra and also give us the chance to get feedback from our professional tutors. This will hopefully all culminate in an end-of-semester virtual concert, which we will be able to watch together via Zoom.

Players are welcome to join at any time. There are no auditions so if you enjoy playing music with others and are willing to give the music a go, then we would love for you to join us. Our membership includes students from various universities, though mainly Strathclyde, as well as musicians from across Glasgow.

We’re always contactable via our e-mail, Facebook page and Instagram account.

This summer we formed a smaller virtual group to experiment with playing music together online. All our finished performances are on this YouTube playlist.
