SUSO is a friendly student-led orchestra made up of enthusiastic players of all abilities who enjoy playing music together!
Join us for rehearsals on Fridays at 5 in the Royal College Assembly Hall
We have weekly rehearsals during the semester, in the Royal College Assembly Hall (RC471) on Friday evenings from 17:15-19:15, and perform a concert at the end of each semester.
We play a wide selection of music, in a variety of styles, to suit everyone’s tastes and instruments.
We are led by our conductor John Grant and supported every week by our four string tutors Bob Cairns (Violin 1), Eleanor Kennedy (Violin 2), George Hillier (Viola) and Rosie Townhill (Cello). We also have some sectionals rehearsals where we also have additional Woodwind, Brass and Percussion tutors.
Players are welcome to join us 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. Students from all institutions are welcome to join us, including Glasgow Caledonian and City of Glasgow College.
We’re always contactable via our e-mail, Facebook page and Instagram account.
Shown below are some pictures from our 2022 Winter Concert. We usually play two concerts per year – one at the end of each semester – with new repertoire for each.
