Collegium Musicum - university orchestra

Kiel University’s Collegium Musicum was founded back in 1921 and has a long tradition. Orchestral programmes are performed in the summer semesters, which include a wide spectrum of musical directions, from symphonies and solo concerts of the classic-romantic repertoire through to musical and film music. In the winter semesters, choral-symphonic pieces are performed together with the Studentenkantorei. New members are welcome at the start of the semester.
