Van Uven Foundation
Prof. dr. M.J. Van Uven (1878 – 1959) was a professor in Mathematics who founded the Wageningen Student Orchestra in 1919 and the Wageningen Student Choir in 1945. In 1947, the choir and orchestra were united into the Wageningen Student Choir and Orchestra Association. Professor Van Uven conducted the choir until 1954 and the orchestra until December 1957. He also funded the important materials to let the orchestra function by buying instruments and sheet music. The collection was later on managed by the Prof. Van Uven Foundation. Currently, The Van Uven Foundation holds several strings and uncommon winds instruments in trust. As a student, you can borrow these.
