Hocus Pocus

Have you always been wondering what howling cats, scratching chickens and barking dogs sound like on a violin? Do you like humorous chamber music and are you a fan of beautiful baroque music?

On April 5, the Kunstorkest will be performing a programme centered around the theme of deceptions and illusions. Among others, the programme includes the ouverture from Mozart’s opera La Finta Semplice, literally “The Fake Innocent”. The programme also includes Farina’s “Capriccio Stravagante”, where we will show how the violin can transform into different animals, but also a guitar, a lyre and a drum. The concert will take place in de Doopsgezinde kerk in Utrecht. Come out of your nest for the Kunstorkest!

Date: Friday, April 5th, 2024, 20:00
Location: Doopsgezinde kerk, Oudegracht 270, 3511NV Utrecht

Tickets can be bought at the door. Price for students: € 8; regular price: € 12.

UUnited 2019

On the 28th of March, the Kunstorkest played a remarkable concert during the UUnited festival in Tivolivredenburg, Utrecht with the famous TV-chef Rudolph van Veen. During the concert we traversed the boundaries between coocking and music making. It was a concert full of tasty notes, sweet harmonies and spicey solos.
