musilon in a nutshell
Musilon is a student choir at the University Twente which specializes in pop songs.
The choir started started as a small group of students performing mainly jazz, pop, rock, and even some classical pieces and quickly grew to a choir of more than 50 members whom up until this day still rehearse every Monday.
Because we need enough rehearsals to prepare for the concerts, Musilon only accepts new members at the start of each semester: September and February. Right now, the earliest moment to become a member is February 2022. The open rehearsals are planned on February 7th, and 14th and 21st. At these open rehearsals, you can experience a rehearsal and see if Musilon is something for you.
Musilon is open for all members to join, no prior experience is required, though recommended. If you want to become a member there is a small voice group test, in which we determine your range and voice group. For a Musilon membership you will need a UnionCard/CampusCard.
Fun At musilon
Our choir normally organises two concerts every year in which we will perform some of our newest songs. One concert will be around Christmas and we perform one just before the summer break as well. The concerts themself are mostly song in a acappela or accompanied with a piano, occasionally joined by other associations providing dance, more instruments, or even more choir!
We also organise other activities like study weekends, more sport like activities like skating, or even a bycicle dinner in which every course is at a different place, and many more. After each rehearsal we also stay to sing even more and often end the evening in the Vestingbar.
