The University of Scranton String Orchestra is a 30+-member ensemble comprised of members of the university community - mostly undergraduate students, joined by a few members of the faculty and staff - who play violin, viola, cello, or string bass and are brought together by a mutual love of music-making. The ensemble performs four or five times per academic year, and most of their performances are open to the public and are free of admission charge.
