University Symphony Orchestra

You do not need to be a music major to join an ensemble.

The University Symphony Orchestra is one of the major ensembles at Texas Tech. This 80-member ensemble has earned great public acclaim for its performances on campus, during its annual tour, and at national conferences. At least seven major concerts or events are scheduled throughout the year, with a comprehensive repertoire of works from the 18th to the 21st centuries, including collaborations with guest composers, the University Choirs and Lubbock Chorale, the School of Music's Opera Theatre program, and with our annual Student Soloist Competition winners. Members regularly perform with the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra and are in high demand as leading members of other regional orchestras.
