  • Fall Concert 2022

    SHOT has given another Fall Concert on the 1st of December. It was a great success, thanks to a great audience!

  • Concert trip 2022!
    After 4 years, it was finally time for SHOT to go abroad. This year, we went to Munich and Florence.

    We explored the cities at day time. The evenings were spent in parks, Biergartens and Irish Pubs. We gave both planned as well as spontaneous concerts. We finished off with the amazing Toscana Music Festival!

    We have truly had a wonderful time together and look forward to our next trip abroad. Especially thanks to Aron and Jesse, we have some great photo’s to remember this trip by. Also a big thank you to our sponsors: Moneybird and Meester van de Brink!
  • SHOT/SOLO lustrumconcert
    The SHOT/SOLO lustrumconcert took place on the 24th of April. It turned out to be a wonderful afternoon!

    Before the break, SHOT played, among others, the Fourth Symphony by Alfred Reed and Carmesina, by Manuel Moralez Martínez. Also, the first 30 days of a post-pandemic world by Euripides Dionysiadis was played; a piece composed especially for the 30th lustrum. These and the other pieces can be listened to on SHOTs YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/StudHarmOrkTwente

    After the break, SOLO, the SHOT Old Members Orchestra, performed. They played, among others, Armenian Dances part 1 by Alfred Reed and Summon the heroes by John Williams.
  • Phil Collins Collection online!

    The online covers are back! As part of our lustrum video, we all recorded our parts of the Phil Collins Collection and this is the end result. Enjoy!

    Special thanks to Arnout Franken for editing the video and Aron Boerkamp for editing the audio!



  • Ensemble evening

    Soon, SHOT's SamenspeelCommissie (Play Together Committee) will host another ensemble night. Lots of members have formed ensembles in recent weeks and have been busy rehearsing.
