ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA
NUS Chinese Orchestra (NUSCO) was established in 1973 under the NUS Music Department, now know as NUS Centre For the Arts (CFA). It has since progressed to become an active amateur orchestra in the local Chinese music scene.
The Orchestra has an extensive performance history of showcasing instrumental soloists, chamber groups of varied combinations and medium-sized ensembles, with the core orchestra boasting well over 80 musicians, including both undergraduates and alumni. Under the guidance of the Music Director and Resident Conductor Mr. Moses Gay and the tutelage of professional tutors, the Orchestra aims to continue exploring a diverse range of repertoire, from traditional to contemporary works by both local and overseas composers.
