We are the home of the University’s only orchestra and concert band and one of the biggest musical communities on campus. We perform several times a year at events in and outside of the university, the highlight being our own annual spring concert. We play a variety of music ranging from traditional classical pieces to the most popular evergreens.
The society was founded back in 2015 and has expanded ever since, the latest addition being our own concert band. The orchestra had over 50 members in the last academic year, and our annual themed concerts sell out regularly. The last one, “A Journey through Time”, is also available on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrxczt6reBU).
As well as our weekly rehearsals we host a range of socials events, from pizza nights to seeing concerts in other cities, making us not only a music playing society, but also a great community to be a part of.
Interested? Follow our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lsuclassical/), attend one of our taster sessions during Freshers week or come to our rehearsals in the Cope Auditorium on Wednesdays at 7pm (Orchestra) and Fridays at 6pm (Concert Band). We look forward to meeting you!
