The University of London Symphony Orchestra is widely recognised as one of the leading student orchestras in the UK. Founded in 1955, ULSO was established to provide students from the diverse academic backgrounds of the University of London's component colleges with the opportunity to play together.

In July 2010, the internationally-renowned conductor Daniel Capps took over as Music Director of ULSO. Repertoire highlights for his debut season include Stravinsky Rite of Spring and Shostakovich Symphony No. 11, and much more besides.
