Yale Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1965 by a group of students, the Yale Symphony Orchestra (YSO) is one of the leading undergraduate ensembles in the United States. The largest orchestra in Yale College and the only one with a full-time manager and music director, the YSO provides a means for students to perform orchestral music at a conservatory level while taking advantage of all Yale, as a liberal arts institution, has to offer. Beyond its season concerts, the YSO is famous for its legendary Halloween Show, a student-directed and produced silent movie, whose score the orchestra performs at midnight in full costume. Long a Yale tradition, the Halloween Show sells out Woolsey Hall days in advance, and the production remains a closely guarded secret until the night of performance; recent cameo appearances include James Franco and Woody Allen. The YSO numbers among its alumni members the most distinguished American orchestras. Throughout its history it has been committed to commissioning and performing new music, and in every season works with the Yale School of Music and the undergraduate Department of Music to programme and perform orchestral works written by Yale faculty, graduate, and undergraduate composers. Past tours have brought the orchestra to Portugal, Brazil, Turkey, Korea, Central Europe, and Italy, and former music directors include Richmond Browne, John Mauceri, C. William Harwood, Robert Kapilow, Leif Bjaland, Alasdair Neale, David Stern, James Ross, James Sinclair, Shinik Hahm, and George Rothman. The YSO has performed with renowned soloists including Yo-Yo Ma, Frederica
