We have two ensembles at the University; Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Orchestra. Together we put on three concerts a year, one each academic term, under the leadership of our professional conductor, Tim Pithers. We also enjoy collaborating with other societies and enjoy accompanying solo performances from other musicians and singers within the University.
In 2019, we collaborated with a member of Operasoc who accompanied a set of Arias in our Spring Concert, and with the Exeter University Choral Society to accompany Haydn's Creation. We have also collaborated with the Exeter University Chamber Orchestra on a tour to Belgium.
As well as our concert performances, we aim to work with the local community and establish links even outside of Exeter. We have visited Barton Place Care Home to perform to the residents, Exeter Hospital and local primary schools to spark an interest in music for young individuals!
We also have a well established relationship with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and have received support from their musicians during music week at the start of term one. We continue to collaborate and are fortunate enough to be joined by their musicians again next year!
Our committee are looking forward to welcoming new members, and tackling new, challenging pieces of music, at the start of the forthcoming academic year.
