The orchestra was founded in 2004 by Alex Reid in order to bring together graduate musicians dispersed across the university and town and provide a sociable environment in which to rehearse and meet other like-minded musicians. The orchestra gave its first concert conducted by Peter Tregear in March 2005.
The Cambridge Graduate Orchestra welcomes graduates, post-graduates, fellows, mature students and other interested instrumentalists from within the university and city. Rehearsals occur throughout the calendar year.
