NUSO is conducted and administered by the director of orchestras. The ensemble has evolved into one of the nation’s great collegiate orchestras that has placed many alumni in top orchestras and opera companies. Many members are already contenders for positions in orchestras throughout the world.
In spring 2018, NUSO embarked on a three-city Asia tour, with performances in Forbidden City Concert Hall, Beijing; Shanghai Symphony Hall, Shanghai; and Tsuen Wan Town Hall Auditorium, Hong Kong.
This ensemble is open to music majors only.
