From 14 to 16 August 2014, NUSSO participated in the Student Life Fair organized by the NUS Student Union, as part of an initiative to allow for newly matriculated students to be exposed to the various activities and groups they can join during their university life. Our orchestra set up a booth displaying photos of our past performances, and played video recordings of our past concerts to attract potential musicians.
At the end of the three days, we managed to get an overwhelming response from the student population with an incredibly large number of sign ups for auditions. Many people also came forward, hoping to know more about our past and upcoming performances.
As such, this three-day event can be said to be a huge success for NUSSO because not only were we able to attract potential members, we were also able to increase the awareness of our group among the student population, and hopefully increase our audience.
