The Utrechtsch Studenten Concert rehearses every Monday evening from 19:00 – 22:00 at Cultuurcentrum Parnassos. The repertoire mainly consists of Late Romantic and Early Modern music. With Bas Pollard as its director, the USConcert performs at several occasions. The main concerts are in June and December, but the orchestra also accompanies the pianists in the International Students Piano Competition and plays a part in the so called “Culturele Zondagen”.
Although playing music at a high level is of primary importance to most musicians in the USConcert, the orchestra also functions as a way to meet new people and have a good time. The annual tour to a foreign country, for example, is experienced by most members as a good alternative to a holiday.
