Every year the orchestra plays a variety of challenging pieces, which are performed on several great stages.

Symphony orchestra Ensuite

As the only student symphonic orchestra of the region, Ensuite aims to bring musicians of all skill levels together to play classical music of high quality. In the last few years Ensuite has played many different pieces and themes, ranging from the ‘Peer Gynt Suites’ and ‘Echoes of Ossian’ to more modern themes like ‘Call of Duty’, ‘Angry Birds’ and ‘Tetris’.

Ensuite is not only a fast-growing orchestra. It is also a very warm and friendly group of people who enjoy spending time together, both during the rehearsals and outside of the regular rehearsal hours. Our conductor, Bart Partouns, can also be found at the bar regularly. If you are interested in joining the orchestra, don’t hesitate to drop by!
