ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA

The symphony orchestra Plenum was founded in the summer 2016, by a group of young Copenhagen-based musicians, who enjoy playing symphonic music together.

However, it is also very important for us to have a social orchestra and to get to know each other. We don’t just come to rehearse – we also have a lot of fun.

At the moment we are playing a more classical repertoire, but we are also open to more modern pieces and maybe film music.

We currently have a bit more than 30 members, and we are still recruiting new musicians. We especially need strings (violins, violas, celli and double basses), french horns, trombones and percussion.
