The WSKOV consists of a symphony orchestra and a choir. We give a concert at least twice a year. It contains a cappella and orchestra pieces and a joint piece of classical music. Sometimes we go on tour (on August 2017 we are going to Spain!), play at events or do other special performances. You can find the music of the last seasons by going to Concerts/Repertoire. Under Association you can find out more about the WSKOV, its history and the Van Uven Stichting, which has an important function as an administrator of sheet music and classical instruments for the benefit of amateur musicians.The repertoire and upcoming concert dates of the current season can be found directly under the Concert button. 

We are always looking for enthusiastic students and PhD'ers in and around Wageningen who’d like to make music together. Interested? Come and join the open rehearsals at the beginning of a season and taste the atmosphere and feel the kick that making music together gives you! You can also send an e-mail to wskov@wur.nl.
Our next open rehearsals are on 5 and 12 September for the orchestra and on 7 and 14 September for the choir. 

The orchestra is directed by Frank Adams and the choir by Krista Audere. Every week the orchestra rehearses on Tuesday and the choir on Thursday, from 19.30 to 22.00 in the Aula building of Wageningen University, Generaal Foulkesweg 1.
As we are an active association, we offer, besides the music, concerts and rehearsal weekends, all kinds of fun activities like a barbecue, game night, gala and an open stage. We're a vibrant association with a lot of great activities!
