During the Fresher’s Fair we’ll run a Zoom chat where you can ask our committee any questions you have about the Orchestra. We’ll be live from 14:00-16:00 on both Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th. You just need to e-mail or message us before or during these time slots so we can send you the Zoom link.
Welcome meeting Friday 18th September 17:00
Come along to our first meeting of the year, where we’ll be telling you about our plans for the upcoming semester and getting to know each other a bit. We won’t be starting rehearsals properly but there’ll still be opportunities to get your instruments out!
First rehearsal & social Friday 25th September 17:00
Our first online ‘rehearsal’ where we’ll take a look at some of the music we’ll be playing, meet the Orchestra team and get to know your section. We’ll have a range of fun musical and social activities.
To take part in any of these please get a membership from our website so that we can contact you, a Free Trial option is available. We will then send out Zoom invites for the Welcome meeting and rehearsal will be sent out earlier on in the day on the respective Friday.
We’re always contactable via e-mail, our Facebook page and Instagram account.
This year SUSO is looking forward to playing a large selection of music, in a variety of styles, to suit everyone’s tastes and instruments. This semester the Orchestra will be rehearsing completely online via Zoom, where we will put together a series of online pre-recorded pieces. Throughout the semester there will be a chance to get feedback from our musical tutors and hopefully a chance to do some smaller online live sectionals. 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.
As an Orchestra we enjoy a range of both organised and informal social events which will take place online this semester.
For updates and further information please join our Facebook group or contact us via e-mail.
This summer we formed a smaller virtual group to experiment with playing music together online. All our finished performances are on this YouTube playlist.
