The Utrecht Student Choir and Orchestra (USKO) is one of the largest and most well-known student music ensembles in the Netherlands. The main objective of the USKO is to encourage students in the practice of and love for music. Next to the performance of classical music at a high level, social activities play a major role in the USKO. For instance, each year a one-week rehearsal camp and a 10-day tour are organized, during which you get to know your fellow students and can have a great time.
At present the choir and orchestra consist of about 200 members, mainly students at Utrecht University and Hogeschool Utrecht. The USKO occupies a unique place within the Dutch music world because of the combination of a relatively large choir and orchestra, the youthfulness and enthusiasm of its members and the high quality of the performances.
