The Orquesta Sinfónica Universidad de Navarra calls for new auditions to add new musicians to the orchestra. Due to current circumstances, the selection process will be conducted online. Candidates can register through a form on the website of the University of Navarra Museum until July 4; and send their video to the email until July 14.

The auditions are open to all students of the University of Navarra and other universities and institutions such as conservatories and music schools, who are currently studying or have completed their programs of study, in all instrumental specialties. The instructions are available on the Museum's website.

Starting this year, the musicians of the Orchestra, conducted by Borja Quintas, can enroll in the Artistic Talent program, promoted by the Museum's area Campus Creativo. The initiative aims to goal the integral training of the students, helping them to combine programs of study with their artistic talents. Thanks to this program, which is also open to members of the University of Navarra Choir and the training Theatrical Plan, situations of overlap between rehearsals or performances and practices, work, classes or exams are avoided.


During the confinement, the University of Navarra Symphony Orchestra and Choir recorded a special version of Gaudeamus Igitur, written by the famous Russian composer Kuzma Bodrov. It was a gift for their fellow seniors who are graduating this year.

In this course, the orchestra tackled a program combining opera and ballet music by the composers Khachaturian and Smetana, after the success obtained in its previous concert, a Gala Lírica at the Museo Universidad de Navarra and the Teatro Victoria Eugenia in San Sebastián, together with the acclaimed soloists María José Montiel, Enrique Ferrer and the cellist Ángel Luis Quintana.

In the spring, the group had also planned to share the stage with pianist Rosa Torres Pardo, but the meeting had to be postponed due to the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
