Glasgow University String Ensemble is a student-led string orchestra (violin, viola, cello and bass) rehearsing once a week on the university’s main campus.
Our repertoire includes film scores and pop music as well as classical pieces, and we take new suggestions from the whole ensemble each year. We’re a mixed-level group welcoming all players regardless of skill – all we require is a friendly attitude. You don’t need to audition to join, just show up along with your own instrument. We consider ourselves a society as well as an orchestra, and organise regular socials and fun activities for all members outside of our official rehearsals.
If you play a string instrument and are looking for a relaxed orchestra whose primary goal is music for the fun of it, we’d love for you to join us. For more information, have a look at the Facebook group or send us an email!
