QHarmony is the biggest student orchestra of Nijmegen, with almost sixty members. Most are students of the Radboud University (RU) and the College of Arnhem and Nijmegen (HAN). At QHarmony we feel that making nice, good music is just as important as having the social aspect of making music. With our challenging and varied repertoire we give approximately four concerts per year. Besides making music we organize many non-musical activities. Furthermore, every year we have a rehearsal weekend and every two to three years we go on a concert tour abroad (for example to Germany, Budapest and Prague).
Changes because of to the coronavirus
QHarmony will always follow the rules regarding the coronavirus. We follow the guidelines of the RIVM and the KNMO. This can affect our rehearsals and get-togethers. The base will always be to get together in a safe way for everyone. If larger groups aren’t allowed to come together, this means that we will have online meetings and no physical rehearsals. As soon as a group of at least 30 people can come together, we will have rehearsals on a 1.5 meter distance. This could be in two groups, if rehearsing with the complete orchestra is not allowed or possible. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to give concerts in the past 1.5 years, but we are busy with alternatives, like the at-home recordings we recently made.
