Ghent University Symphonic Orchestra

The Ghent University Symphonic Orchestra (GUSO) is a vibrant symphonic student orchestra, completely for and by students! You won’t just find heavenly sounds in GUSO though, the orchestra is also known for a joyous atmosphere and a slew of extracurricular activities, like pizza dates, dress-up rehearsals, cocktail nights… To celebrate all that practice, we organize multiple concerts near the end of each semester. Weekly rehearsals take place in the Therminal, Wednesday nights from 19:15 till 22. Additionally, each semester we hold a rehearsal weekend (stage) with the entire orchestra! The fall stage takes place within Belgium, and for the spring stage the orchestra traditionally travels abroad. So far, GUSO managed to make its way to Budapest, Tuscany, Valencia and many others.

Ghent University Symphonic Orchestra

TThe Ghent University Wind Ensemble (GUHO) is an enthusiastic group of students in Ghent, composed of woodwind, brass and percussion players, that come together to play music! As a group, we unite ourselves around having fun and especially making beautiful music. Throughout the academic semester, we rehearse each Monday evening from 8 to 10 PM, to - under the supervision of top-class conductor Dimitri Bracke - prepare ourselves for two great concerts in December and May. But as a (real) student aspires, it does not end here. We also organize various activities, think of trips, board game nights, parties, repetitionweekends, a great summer trip to Slovenia, and many more! Is there a GUHO'er in you? Then quickly register for our open repetitions on the first two Mondays of the academic year!
