About us

Sempre Crescendo is a student orchestra and choir that is located in the historic city centre of Leiden. This student association focussed on music is known for its traditions. It was founded in 1831 and is thereby one of the oldest student music associations in this world.

Every Thursday evening, the choir and orchestra rehearse under the direction of professional conductors. This rehearsal takes place from 20:00 till 22:30 at ‘Minerva’, which is located on Breestraat 50 in Leiden. After the rehearsal, our members engage in conversation in our beautiful ‘Salon’ while enjoying a few beers.

Both the choir and orchestra, apart and together, perform in at least two concerts a year, one in December and one in June.

Our music association is open for anyone who likes music, so feel free to contact us!
