Grand opening event 100 jaar WUR

The Dutch student orchestra, composed of 90 student musicians from universities across the Netherlands, plays its repertoire of classical music each year at various locations. On 8 March 2018, they will be playing in Wageningen during the spectacular opening night of the anniversary: 100 years of Wageningen University & Research.

It will be an evening focused on the theme 'Wageningen Wisdom & Wonder' and will end with a surprise act, opening the celebration of 100 years of Wageniningen Univeristy & Research.

The event will get underway with a performance by the Dutch National Student Orchestra (NSO) at Forum. Visitors can then enjoy a glass of mulled wine in the event tent (between Atlas and Orion), while listening to the WUR student and employee band BigBand Sound of Science. Around midnight, Rector Magnificus Arthur Mol will announce the official start of the anniversary year with a celebratory toast. The evening will culminate in a spectacular laser show that will incorporate the past, present, and future of WUR.
