Introducing the WSKOV!
WSKOV is the abbreviation of the Dutch name “Wageningse StudentenKoor- en Orkest Vereniging”, also known as the Wageningen Student Choir and Orchestra Association. We are a musical association that started making and performing music in the year 1919, and still does so to the present day! As our name already indicates, we consist of both a choir (50-70 people) and an orchestra (around 35 people) that rehearse on separate days. On Tuesdays, the orchestra rehearses from 19:30-22:00, and on Thursday evening, the choir sings together, also from 19:30-22:00 at our rehearsal location ‘the Aula’ (Generaal Foulkesweg 1, Wageningen). After rehearsal, we often stay for drinks in our association building behind the aula, where members get to know each other, and where people who did not fulfill their musical needs during rehearsal yet, make even more music!
Each academic year is divided into two seasons, a short one running from September to December, and a long one from January to June. This means we accept new members every September and every January. Halfway each season we go on a rehearsal weekend where we not only rehearse together intensely (the gave it away, didn’t it), but where we also eat together, play games together, dance together, and bond together! Naturally, each season ends with a concert on which both choir and orchestra perform!
