Just as Beethoven's ground-breaking approach opened new frontiers for generations of composers, pioneers in NUS Symphony Orchestra (NUSSO) have forged the path for classical music on campus through their commitment to excellence.

In celebration of the Orchestra's 40th anniversary, NUSSO will present timeless symphonic works inspired by legacies of great masters. Often nicknamed as Beethoven's 10th, Brahm's Symphony No. 1 displayed much of Beethoven's influences, while Liszt, who was rumoured to have met Beethoven in his young age, wrote Les Preludes, one of the first works that brought to life the Symphonic Poem style.
