Het Huisorkest is a students orchestra located in Utrecht. Our repertoire includes several music genres (as world music, jazz, classical music, pop, musicals, and movie soundtracks). The orchestra consists of strings, woodwind, brass, drums, and piano. Our rehearsals are held at Wednesday evening (20:30-22:00) in Parnassos. After the rehearsals, we like to have a drink together in the bar. Every now and then we organize other fun activities (like Christmas-diners, or we watch a film together).

Every half year we are working on a different project, with its own theme and music. During our concerts, we cooperate with other art forms (like theater, dance, film, laser shows, puppet-theater and the fine arts). Our orchestra is suitable for international students, since we start new projects each September and January.

For our current project we are especially in need of violins. Of course other instruments are also very welcome. Unfortunately, we currently have a waiting list for flutes. 

If you are interested, you can come to our open rehearsals, which were on the 24th and 31st of January 2018. The next open rehearsals will be in September. You can always visit our normal rehearsals if you want to join us sooner than September. The rehearsals take place in Parnassos in room 2.07. Address: Kruisstraat 201, 3581 GK Utrecht. If you like to come, please send an email to: info@hethuisorkest.nl or fill in the form at 'contact', so we'll make sure to get your sheet music ready!
