About Us

Aims and Objectives:
1.Build membership numbers and reach out to an even larger pool of musicians
2. Put on a concert in the city to publicise and perform to members of the general public as well as students, to influence the wider community
3.Play some really great, high quality music, as well as having fun and growing as a society.

The University of Exeter Modern Orchestra (EUMO) is an unauditioned musical ensemble which combines a Symphony Orchestra with Saxophones, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, Synth and Vocals to play a range of modern and contemporary pieces including rock and roll, funk, jazz, musical and classic house. We've played pieces such as Africa, Eye of the Tiger, Mr Blue Sky and we are excited to get arranging some more great tunes. 

The orchestra was founded in 2017 and we have had an incredibly successful first year as a society.  We are the first Contemporatry Orchestra in the South West and possibly at Universities in the UK. EUMO is based around the world-famous orchestras led by the Conductor and Arranger Jules Buckley such as the Heritage Orchestra and the Metropole Orkest.

We rehearse on a Friday night at 6:30pm in Frank Oliver at Kay House, Duryard. Rehearsals are aimed to be a relaxing atmosphere at the end of the week to come and play music and have fun. Each term we work towards a concert and our next big gig is at the Exeter Phoenix on Monday 18th March 2018 - tickets can be purchased from the Exeter Phoenix website!

We welcome all musicians and vocalists of any ability to come make music with us - whatever you play and whatever standard, we'd love you to join us!
