Are you a student with a desire to sing?
Join Nijmeegs Studentenkoor Alphons Diepenbrock! The choir consists of about 40 members and is oriented towards classical music. We give at least two concerts each year. We rehearse every Tuesday evening in a relaxed atmosphere in Wijkcentrum Villa Nova, Derde van Hezewijkstraat 2 (near central station). After rehearsal we always go to ‘De Kluizenaar’ for drinks.
Singing is not the only thing we do at the NSKAD. Besides musicality, group bonding is paramount. We have several committees organising a variety of activities, ranging from the by now traditional intro-bowling, to barbecues, a music night, 'diner rouler', games night, beer tastings and an autumn walk in the forest. Furthermore, we organise a 'choir weekend' each year, as well as an exchange with a foreign orchestra about once every two years. In the summer of 2019, for instance, we went to Nancy in France, where we performed Mozart's Requiem with the Orchestre Symphonique Universitaire de Lorraine.
Who can join?
Every student (university or other) under age 30 who wants to sing in a classical choir can join. Singing experience is not required, gezelligheid is definitely welcome. You don't need to audition.
When and where does the choir rehearse?
We have rehearsals every Tuesday night from 19:45 until 22:15 in Wijkcentrum Villa Nova, Derde van Hezewijkstraat 2 (near central station). Rehearsals are held in Dutch, but international students are more than welcome to join and important communications will also be done in English.
What does it cost?
Membership fees are €50 per half-year for students, and €100 per half-year for PhD-students/alumni.
At the start of every concert season there are open rehearsals. For anyone interested in joining this is the perfect opportunity to sing along.
