Introduction of UMSO
    UM String Orchestra

    The University of Macau String Orchestra (UMSO) was established in January 2010. It consists of undergraduates and postgraduates of the University of Macau and there are currently 40 members. In order to provide members professional training to improve their techniques and performance level, orchestra makes its best to offer various musical platforms for UM string enthusiasts to perform and exchange music knowledge. It also aims to build up members’ friendship, through of these training and performances. In addition, the Orchestra also aims to promote the art culture on campus, letting UM students appreciate the diversity of music and promote the development of local stringed music.

Besides, the Orchestra was invited to the joint concert “The Future of Classical Music” – A concert presented by Macao Orchestra with local musicians annually since 2013.
