USSO

The University-Shenandoah Symphony Orchestra (USSO) is a semi-professional student/community orchestra which brings quality musical programs to the Shenandoah Valley. Professional musicians from Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, Roanoke and Blacksburg join local residents and advanced students in 3-4 programs a year. Conducted by Barry Kolman, the orchestra has hosted several prominent guests in the past including Robert Shaw, The Netherlands Wind Ensemble and the Solati Piano Trio of Boston.


The orchestra is financially supported by Washington and Lee University and performs on-campus in the new Wilson Concert Hall. In the past, the USSO has presented children concerts, family concerts, as well as classical music programs. The concerts are enthusiastically supported by the local as well as the university community.
