  • Adopt a Member
    From 6 to 14 July this year, we will go on a concert tour with SHOT. We will go to Wroclaw, in Poland, and Linz, in Austria. During the trip, we will rehearse and give several (open-air) concerts. As a musical highlight, we will take part in the MID Europe Festival in Schladming. Apart from that, it promises to be a lot of fun. For this trip, you can also adopt a member! That way, you will receive an update by e-mail twice, on how they experience the trip. You will also get access to the Polarsteps, where daily updates will be posted. Would you like this? To follow one of our members, you can make a donation of (at least) €10 on https://www.steunutwente.nl/project/shot-concertreis-2024 and indicate that you want to follow them.
  • Concours 2024
    On March 9th, 2024, SHOT performed at the concours in Zutphen at the Hanzehof. Here we were awarded with 91 points for Danse Funambulesque by Jules Strens and 92 points for Rapsodia Hernandiana by Santiago Quinto Serna. An average of 91.5 points with which we won in the 1st division! We are extremely happy with our performance and grateful for the work of all the musicians, guest-musicians, soloists and of course our conductor Ronny.
