Open Stage

Show your talents during the Apollo Open Stage 2023!

On Friday the 17th of February, 20:00, the Apollo open stage will take place!

During this evening, students can show their talents on the stage in the Agora, in the Vrijhof. All types of acts are welcome. If you have a great idea that is not one of the options, please let the committee know as well, and we can see what is possible.

Sign-ups are open from Monday 21st of November until Monday the 19th of December. The committee will need to have all the additional information for your act before the 1st of January. Additional information can be music files, special requests, changes in your act, etc.

In order to promote the open stage and decorate the Agora, every act has to send in a poster (in pdf format) before the 1st of January. This could be a graphic design, a picture or a visual representation of anything related to your act. Make sure the name of your act is on it.

The Gala!

Finally time for the gala! Together with all of you we will be going to space for an entire evening! From 9 o’clock at night we will be welcoming you to Rico Latino to have a wonderful night together, all in the theme of ‘Fly Me To The Moon’. AT half past nine, the live band will start, and we will all dance the opening dance together on the song that matches our theme perfectly.

Apollo Dance Show 2022 – Metamorphoses

Once upon a time… Apollo used to organize a Dance Show. It has been almost 2 years, but we are very happy to announce that on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March 2022 Apollo will be organizing another dance show.

Egyptian stick dance

The ancient martial arts Tahtib, formerly only accessible to men, and Raqs al Assaya, danced by bellydancers, have something in common. In this workshop you’ll discover it through dance!

The choreography is based on the story of Hermaphroditus, a character from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

Come join the workshop on the 19th of February at the Audiozaal in the Vrijhof

[NL] Co-organized with Studium Generale: De klank van emoties in muziek

Foto verkregen van de Studium Generale pagina

Tranen in je ogen van een lied krijgen. Irritatie ontdekken in ongeduldige noten. Muziek kan allerlei emoties oproepen. Peter Bogaert legt uit hoe componisten in de afgelopen eeuwen onze menselijke gevoelens verklankten. Hij laat fragmenten horen van componisten als Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Wagner en de serialisten uit de 20e eeuw. Ook geeft hij een inleiding op twee stukken die het Nederlands Studenten Orkest op 9 februari in Hengelo zal uitvoeren. In de Akademische Festouverture van Brahms hoor je bijvoorbeeld allerlei studentenliederen, zoals het Gaudeamus Igitur. Ein Heldenleben van Strauss is een symfonisch gedicht dat begrijpelijker wordt als je de structuur herkent. Bogaert zal ook zelf op zijn viool passages spelen.

Drs. Peter Bogaert is componist en werkt als violist, dirigent, concertmeester en strijkerscoach in heel Europa. Hij is bij de UT dirigent bij MSO en InSPE.

Het NSO zal op 9 februari spelen in de Schouwburg van Hengelo in het kader van hun landelijke tournee. Kaarten te verkrijgen via: www.nso.nl en op deze avond. Op 8 februari betalen studenten 7,50 euro. Niet-studenten: 12,50 euro.

Dinsdag 8 februari 19:30-21:00 Vrijhof

Aanmelden voor het evenement mogelijk via the website van studium generale.

[Lustrum] Lasergaming – Cancelled

The Vrijhof will transform into an epic arena and you are challenged to defeat the Titans during the fight. Will you take up the challenge? The battle of the century was planned for Saturday 22 January, but due to the corona regulations, the activity is postponed. We will let you know when you can take on the Giants in the Theatre halls of the Vrijhof. We will be starting our battle at 15:00.

You are requested to sign up on our website for the laser game activity. The tickets are €2,50 and are sold in the Apollo webshop! We will try to reschedule the activity.

Apollo Winter Fair 2021

On Saturday 18 December Apollo will host the Winter Fair. During this day, we want to offer warmth and comfort in the cold winter days by offering a number of cosy activities in the Vrijhof. From felting and crocheting in the Audiozaal to movies in the Amphitheater and Just Dance in Agora. Next to that, there will be a musical appearance of Musilon in the foyer. The Winter Fair will take place from 13:00-17:00.

To secure your spot at the workshop, get your tickets in our webshop! During the crocheting workshop, we will be making an adorable winter hat. Don’t you know how to crochet yet? No worries, we will be explaining everything during the workshop. And the best thing is that you can keep your creation afterwards! Next to crocheting, there is also a needle felting workshop, where you will be making the cutest penguins.

Not only is it nice to get together during these cold and dark times, but we will also be raising money for a good cause. This years’ charity will be “Jeugdfonds Sport & Cultuur Enschede” a fund providing children from fewer income families to participate in sports and culture. All the money made on the drink sales during the Winter Fair will be going to the charity.

Crochet Workshop – €5,00

Needle felting Workshop – €2,50
