UofSC Symphony Orchestra Announces 2019-2020 Season

Acclaimed violinist opens the season on September 26

University of South Carolina Symphony Orchestra offers music students the opportunity to study and perform music ranging from the standard symphonic literature to exciting new works for symphony orchestra. Led by conductor Scott Weiss, the UofSC Symphony is the premier orchestra at the university and performs six concerts per year in the Koger Center for the Arts.

This season presents world-class guest artist soloists who perform with the university’s top orchestra. Opening the season, violinist Elena Urioste, hailed by The Washington Post as “a drop-dead beauty who plays with equal parts passion, sensuality, brains and humor,” was recently selected as a BBC New Generation Artist and has been featured on the covers of Strings and Symphony magazines.

Opening Night at the Symphony features violinist Elena Urioste at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 26 at the Koger Center for the Arts (1051 Greene St.).
