As the SNU alumni\orchestra expended in its repertoire\and membership rolls, the\orchestra was renamed the Seoul Symphony\orchestra of New York in 1990. During the 1990s, the\orchestra its\orientation radically rom its roots as small Korean\orchestra in New York. The personnel include students\and professionals rom many backgrounds\and countries.  To reflect these changes, the\orchestra was re-organized\and renamed the Ureuk Chamber\orchesrta  in 1990.
