The Northeastern University Symphony Orchestra is a full symphonic ensemble open to students, staff, and faculty from all backgrounds and majors.  It performs music from the baroque to the present day. Its past repertoire included symphonies, film scores, romantic and contemporary music, and premieres of new works.  Concerts are at the end of the fall and spring semesters.

The NUSO is open to all currently enrolled students, staff, and faculty.  Rehearsals are Tuesdays from 6 to 8:30pm at the Fenway Center.  Auditions are generally held for seating only. Auditions for new members begin after the first rehearsal of the fall and spring semesters, with additional times announced at the beginning of each semester.

Orchestra is an extracurricular activity, but membership in NUSO requires an enrollment fee to sustain the organization. Signing up for orchestra as a free, one-credit elective on myNEU is also strongly recommended. Undergraduate students may register for orchestra on myNEU by adding the MUSC 1906 class (CRN 10514).  This course may be repeated every semester for credit.
