The European Student Orchestra

2019-04-15

Today, it's exactly two years ago that ESOF17 kicked off! The then third edition of the festival featured more orchestras and activities than ever before. It was also the first time we brought together a European Student Orchestra.

What happens if you put young people together who do not speak the same language, but are connected with each other via music? During the festival editions for student orchestras ESOF ‘17 and ESOF ‘18 in Leuven and Strasbourg, this concept of a united European Student Orchestra was established. The members of the ESO experienced their participation as very amusing, educational and all wished for a sequel. We can finally announce the continuaftion of these projects: the official, standalone European Student Orchestra is now launched. During summer, different members from student orchestras from all over Europe will gather together to form a new ESO and experience the pleasure of playing together. After an intensive week of rehearsing under the professional guidance of Benjamin Haemhouts, the orchestra will show the result of the hard practice in a concert-tour, going from city to city and country to country. The first real concert tour will take place in summer of 2020, but we cannot wait that long. Therefore, we organise a pre-tour project in the summer of 2019.
