The Alumni Harmony Orchestra brings the universe to life in EXPANSIONS – the global premier of the young, exceptionally talented composer Kobe Janssens’ new piece. Better yet, you enjoy it all in the laid-back ambience of an aperitif concert.
The programme features a musical invocation of the universe itself, including the following pieces:
- Planets Rising
- Music From Space
- Star Wars Saga
- Fly me to the moon
We’ll be seeing you – in space!
The Alumni Harmonieorkest Leuven, or AHO for short, is a fairly recent phenomenon on Leuven’s musical landscape. AHO was founded in 2010 by a group of KU Leuven University Harmony Orchestra’s former members and is currently composed of around 40 musicians.
Their raison d'être? To make space for alumni to keep playing amazing music after graduating in a positive, low-stress environment.
Directed by Jan De Maeseneer, AHO plays a dynamic set of original concert band compositions and arrangements of well-known melodies from film, musicals, and pop music. Every concert is a one-of-a-kind musical sensation, sure to inspire lively conversations afterwards over a drink and nibbles.
