The Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra performs major literature from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. It is conducted and administered by Victor Yampolsky, director of orchestras. Under his baton, the ensemble has evolved into one of the nation’s great collegiate orchestras that has placed many alumni in top orchestras and opera companies. In January 2019, the NUSO presented a program of Russian music, with works by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
