Imatge Orquestra web

Director: Jesús Badia

The UAB Orchestra was born in the 1996-1997 academic year under the musical direction of Joan Casals. It is a training consisting of musicians who have already reached a basic level and are looking for a space of continuity where they can continue to combine music and university studies with rigor and in a pleasant way.

The Orchestra rehearses weekly and works with a flexible and diverse musical repertoire. As the members vary each course, so does the appearance and the formation of the group, which often approximates the musical profile of a chamber orchestra. Its members have a regular dedication and participate in both rehearsals and concerts that take place inside and outside the UAB throughout the year.



Dates: October 15, 2020 to May 27, 2021

Rehearsal days and times: Monday and Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

And 4 extra intensive tests during the course (day and time to be determined).

The days and hours of rehearsal of the Orchestra may change due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19.

Validable for 6 ECTS credits (annual) or for 3 ECTS credits (semester).
