CANCELLED: Utrecht Student Orchestra Concert
April 29, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED.
Founded in 1823, the Utrechtsch Studenten Concert is the oldest orchestra in the Netherlands. It consists of about 90 students from Utrecht, who combine their study at Utrecht University with playing orchestral repertoire with the leading amateur orchestra of the Netherlands. In 2018 the orchestra celebrated its 195th birthday by performing the opera ‘Thijl’ by Dutch composer Jan van Gilse. The theatre in which the 9 concerts took place was built for the occasion by members of the orchestra and hosted 6000 people in total. This production was nominated for the International Opera Awards 2019 and was broadly admired by several important newspapers in the Netherlands and abroad.
