UvA-Orkest J.Pzn Sweelinck

The UvA Orchestra J.Pzn Sweelinck was founded in 1878, making it the oldest symphony orchestra in Amsterdam. It consists of approximately seventy enthusiastic students from Amsterdam universities and colleges as well as students from other cities. The orchestra rehearses every Thursday evening in the Singelkerk in the center of Amsterdam, after which there are drinks until the early hours. The orchestra offers students the opportunity to develop their musical talent at a high level and to give concerts at special locations at home and abroad, while also enjoying a lot of friendship and conviviality.
