Southampton University Symphony Orchestra is run by an annually elected committee of student players. For the 2019/20 season, let us introduce ourselves!


President – Sophie Blundell

As president, Sophie is in charge of ensuring both her committee and the orchestra are running as smoothly as Debussy’s Petite Suite. Alongside her final year of her MPhys degree, Sophie has the pleasure of leading her
section as principal cellist. No doubt she will do a fantastic job!



Vice President – Nathan Patel

Entering into his masters degree, Nathan has the privilege of working alongside the president and aiding other committee members wherever possible. A keen violinist, he is in charge of running the SUSO friends and alumni scheme – a crucial role in our centenary year! – as well as keeping track of attendance and writing programme notes. Any grammatical errors spotted, send them his way!
