The Orchestre de la Ville et l’Université de Fribourg (OVUF) is an ad hoc orchestra, especially formed for the European Orchestra Festival. Around 30 amateur musicians from various orchestras from Berne have joined to form a string orchestra with Alexandru Ianos as the chief conductor. After only four rehearsals, the orchestra will perform pieces from works for strings by Edvard Grieg, Tchaikovsky and Johan Svendsen as well as the third movement from Ernest Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No.1 with Kirsti Lätsch as a soloist on the piano.
