Uppsala University has its own symphony orchestra since 1627 called the Royal Academic Orchestra. The orchestra consists mainly of students and staff at the university. You can hear the orchestra on its home stage in the Uppsala University Grand Auditorium. If you want to play in the orchestra, you are welcome to apply at the beginning of each autumn term.
