UP Symphony Orchestra

 
 
 
About
 

Currently, both the University of Pretoria Symphony Orchestra (UPSO) and Symphonic Winds (UPSW) form entities of the School of the Arts and present a platform of cultural expression and identity at the University of Pretoria.  UPSO has been in existence since the inception of the Department of Music in 1961 at the University of Pretoria.  Both ensembles showcase, through their unique repertoire and diverse array of participants, the profoundly complex past and present of South Africa as well as repertoire that encapsulates all facets of music, including Western Art Music and world music.  The ambience of the concert hall is an ever-changing experience for the listener. With the intention of changing emotional perceptions, both ensembles strive to entertain and stimulate the audience.
