Symphony Orchestra of the University of Leuven
About the management of the USO

Yet from the foundation of the USO, the orchestra is coordinated by a select group, the council. This group is elected every year, and thus chosen by every member of the orchestra. By doing so, all members (who are in the orchestra for at least one year) of the orchestra have the chance to run for a function in the council.
Do you feel prompted? Don't hesitate to contact a member of the current council!

Our council is composed of following functions:

  • Core Board:
    - Chairman
    - Secretary
    - Treasurer
  • Staging
  • Public Relations
  • Social Media
  • Animation and Recreation
  • Webmaster

The current council (2018-2019) is elected in May 2018. We are very proud to present them and their functions.
