University of Bremen Orchestra and Choir

The University of Bremen Orchestra originates from an ensemble belonging to the former Pedagogical University of Bremen. It was founded there in 1968 as the "Collegium Musicum" by Music Education Professor Klaus Mävers. The ensemble is a full symphony orchestra with between 70 and 100 members, depending on the project and repertoire.
The university's large choir is composed of university students and staff, alumni, and friends who have joined over the years. Since its establishment in 2003, the choir has undertaken concert tours to Puglia (southern Italy), Gdansk, Namibia, Istanbul, Ukraine, China, and England. The choir's repertoire includes numerous works for choir a cappella, with an ensemble, or with a large symphony orchestra, which are mostly performed at the end of the semester together with the University of Bremen Orchestra. Generally, the choir has between 100 and 140 members, depending on the project and repertoire.
