Rotterdam Student Orchestra (RSO)

A joyful orchestra for students & young professionals.

Summer concert 2019 – Erasmus Paviljoen
The Rotterdam Student Orchestra meets Old Friends.
In collaboration with singer Tinka Pijpker and composer Amba Klapwijk the RSO has put together a fantastic repertoire, including Berlioz – Les Nuits d’Ete, Schumann 3rd Symphony and Amba Klapwijk – Five Miniatures.

The RSO is a symphonic orchestra for students & young professionals from Rotterdam and the surrounding area. We are enthusiastic and musical students and ex-students who make classical music together. A close and open-minded group that welcomes new members with open arms. Also a lot of international students find a place in the RSO and play along with us for one or more seasons. Everyone is more than welcome!

Every season we perform one or more concerts. We regularly work together with professional soloists. After every rehearsal we pay a visit to our favourite local bar: Haagse Bluf!
