Performing for the Unley community since 1980


The Unley Symphony Orchestra (USO) is a community orchestra based in the City of Unley, with members aged from 20 to 80+, including university students and retirees. We come from all walks of life, including professions such as music teachers, doctors, lawyers, and tradespeople. In current times when there is so much chaos and uncertainty in the world, the ability for us to play together is a musical oasis.

We rehearse every Tuesday evening to perform three high-quality concerts per year. Our repertoire concentrates on classical orchestral pieces well loved by audiences around the world.
