What is ENUO?

What is ENUO?

The European Network of University Orchestras (ENUO) brings together university symphony orchestras in Europe by facilitating communication between its member organizations.  The mission of ENUO is to serve as a platform where members of European university symphony orchestras and their administrations can easily share information and exchange ideas.  By facilitating these interactions, ENUO aims to inspire creative cooperation between its members, and as a result, provide a deeper cultural understanding within the European Union.

The ENUO website serves as the main platform for the network.  Here one can find a list of all member orchestras and their contact information, a calendar of upcoming concerts presented by member orchestras, future projects organized by the network, inspiration for your own orchestra, and copies of previous newsletters. 

 

History 


Stefan Karpe, Director Musices at Uppsala University, saw the need for a network that would help unite European university symphony orchestras.  In 2011, he organized a project group with Sara Helperin and Marleen Elshof to develop ENUO.  At the end of 2011, university orchestras across Europe were invited to become members of the network.  On February 22, 2012, ENUO was officially launched with 93 member orchestras from 16 countries.  Currently, the network has 117 member orchestras.
