Who We Are
SUStrings was founded in 2006 by Zoe Bolton and Mel Morgan to provide an opportunity for string players at the University of Southampton to explore the extensive and varied repertoire for string orchestra.
The orchestra performs music for string orchestra from a broad scope of musical eras and gives one concert at the end of each term. The orchestra has been conducted by George Holloway, Tilly Burgess, Dominic Harries, Joseph Beckhelling and is currently led by Rosie McNiff.
There are no auditions for joining the orchestra, although there is an informal requirement of grade 5 equivalent to join.
