The Academic Orchestra of the University of Stuttgart
Last year, the Academic Orchestra of the University of Stuttgart celebrated its 50 anniversary. Back in 1963, the University of Stuttgart was still only a “Technical University” with a small chamber orchestra. At this time the conductor Manfred Müller-Cant took over the direction and changed the name of the ensemble to “Academic Orchestra of the University of Stuttgart”.
Since 1988, the Academic Orchestra and the Academic Choir have been directed by Veronika Stoertzenbach, Music Director of the University. Both ensembles consist of more than one hundred musicians, students, and academics coming from throughout the departments of the university. Many of these musicians remain loyal to the ensembles far beyond their student days. The university’s musicians are not only welcomed and well received at concerts and internal celebrations in the main auditorium of the university, but they also give concerts in churches and concert halls in the Stuttgart region. These concerts are complemented by invitations on a regular basis to nearby towns like Waiblingen, Schorn-dorf, Vaihingen an der Enz, or Metzingen. Furthermore, the groups have performed concerts on tours in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Belgium, China, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, the United States, and the Philippines. The ensembles have always been extraordinarily well accepted.
Bookings at Computicket have opened.
This event is on 6 October 20h15.
Cost for all tickets R120.
NB: Should the weather be a problem, the concert moves to the ENDLER hall. Patrons will be notified on Monday 6 October about the change.
