Find a Society



Sign up to our Mailing List to find out more information about our group!

The University of Leicester Orchestra is a friendly, hard-working group of musicians conducted by Dr. Paul Jenkins which aims to build on musical talent at the university.


We perform in several concerts throughout the year and support various other charity and community projects. Anyone who is a keen musician will benefit from joining the society.


We have one rehearsal together each week, with regular sectionals and extra rehearsals throughout the year. Members from the Philharmonia Orchestra and other professional orchestras provide additional coaching at various rehearsals during the year.


Opportunities to get involved with smaller chamber groups and solo performances are also available to all members.
