Spring concerts

Concerts canceled

In consultation with KU Leuven we have regrettably decided that our Spring Concerts cannot take place on April 2nd and 3rd, because of the measures against the spread of the virus COVID-19.

Tickets that are reserved (and possibly already payed via bank transfer) will be refunded.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send an e-mail to info@usoleuven.be or to send us a message on our Facebook or Instagram pages.

Concert Make-A-Wish

On the 30th of April, we teamed up with the Make-A-Wish foundation and the Queen Elisabeth concert hall to allow Aude to fulfill her lifelong dream of performing with a full symphonic orchestra. Unfortunately, due to the current developments around the COVID-19 virus, we have to postpone the concert to the 28th of April 2021.

The ticketing service is provided by the Queen Elisabeth concert hall. If you already bought your ticket they will contact you.


For over fifty years, the University Symphony Orchestra (USO) of the University of Leuven (KULeuven) has been a well-established name in Belgium. The musicians of the orchestra are students of the University of Leuven, who have a passion for music and come together every Wednesday evening to share this passion. They are conducted by Edmond Saveniers.
The season starts at the beginning of the academic year and ends around the Easter holidays. The first series of concerts take place in November, first during a concert tour abroad, then in our home town Leuven. The second series of concerts take place in spring, both in Leuven and elsewhere in Belgium. We have had the honour to play in the Kursaal in Oostende, the Concertgebouw in Brugge, and many other places. 
As the USO is a group of students, it is no surprise that there are also several other activities next to the weakly rehearsals, which create a fun and student-like group atmosphere.
