The Carnegie Mellon All-University Orchestra is an ensemble composed of CMU undergrads, graduate students, staff, and faculty who love to make music. There are no auditions or try-outs - everyone is welcome!
The AUO puts on one concert per semester, available free of charge to members of the CMU community and the public. See our Concerts Page for this year's schedule and recordings of some of our past concerts.
AUO String Theory is a companion ensemble to AUO's main orchestra. Founded in 2008 as a string ensemble, AUO String Theory is now a small chamber orchestra, giving regular independent concerts. AUO String Theory aims to present a wide range of repertoire at a high musical standard, and give students the experience of playing in a smaller ensemble.
String theory rehearses on Saturdays in Margaret Morrison 119 at 3:30pm.
Our Spring 2014 season is well underway, and we have a talented mix of old and new players (about 100 total) from the CMU family (students, faculty, alumni, and neighbors). If you're interested in getting involved for the Fall 2014 semester, stop by our concert, or send us an email at email@example.com.
If you are already a member and you haven't already, you should fill out the Membership Form online. This will make sure that you're kept up-to-date and that you appear on our concert programs.
AUO offers two full concerts each academic year, plus other events interspersed throughout. Our Spring 2014 Concert will be on Sunday, April 6th, at 6pm in The Katz Theatre, located in Squirrel Hill's Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh. Check our schedule page for more details.
AUO can't survive without your help! We want to be able to provide free, awesome concerts to our community and a place for our members to play for years to come, but we can't without you. To make a donation to AUO, follow the easy steps on our support page.
