The Student Wind Orchestra Twente, also known as SHOT, consists of a little over 60 students from the University of Twente, Saxion and ArtEZ. At least twice a year the orchestra gives a concert in Enschede or another city. Besides this, the orchestra visits international music festivals abroad every two years. Festivals in Finland, Austria, Switzerland and Spain have already been visited. The orchestra is conducted by Ronny Buurink, who has led the orchestra for more than 25 years now.
SHOT rehearses every Thursday evening at 8.00 p.m. until 10.30 p.m. in the Audiozaal at the Vrijhof building on the university campus. You are always welcome to come to one of our rehearsals to see if you want to join. Twice a year we have open rehearsals, where new members are welcomed. At this point we usually start working on a new project so that is a good time to join. It is also a good opportunity to get to know the orchestra better. The next open rehearsals will be held in September, but if you are really interested you can always send us a message and you don’t have to wait.
Location: Audiozaal, Vrijhof
