MIRA in a nutshell
Mira is a 'gezellig' and driven student symphony orchestra in Groningen, with a rehearsal and a drink every Thursday, twice a year a dazzling concert in De Oosterpoort, every other year a tour abroad and many more fun activities. Every six months we play a different programme, consisting of an overture, a symphony and a solo work with young, talented musicians or old vedettes.
"A student orchestra changes members every year, due to new students, graduates, exchange students and so on. The trick is to forge a close-knit group in a short period of time and together they make music that sparks joy. Mira has the potential to convincingly perform this challenging programme, full of intense emotions, harmony and sounds of nature. I am looking forward to it!"
