University Choir & Orchestra
There are lots of opportunities to participate in musical activities at Philipps-Universität.
The university choir is largely composed of (former) students of all disciplines. But it is expressly open to anyone interested in singing in a choir. Potential new members can audition at the beginning of each semester.
“Chor Philologia Cantat”
The university’s Philologia Cantat Choir specialises in choral works in Romance languages but you do not have to speak any of these languages to join. The choir is open to anyone who wants to sing. The choir meets once a week . You can fi nd out more from the website of the Foreign Languages Faculty (FB10).
Marburg Student Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is a society organised independently of the university. Apart from giving concerts at the end of the semester, the orchestra also performs at the Marburg three-day festival “3TM”, plays at concerts for children and the New Year’s Concert in Marburg civic centre and has become a fi rm feature of Marburg’s musical culture. Small chamber groups in various combinations can be engaged to play at all kinds of events. New members are always welcome and you can come for a taster session atthe beginning of the semester.
