Everyone is invited to attend the Christmas concert of the Polyphonic Choir and Orchestra of the University of Trento.

The Choir of the University of Trento was established in 2016 with the aim of involving all the voices of the University in a musical and educational project: students, academics, researchers, technical and administrative staff, alumni.

The instrumental group was created in 2017, and the two collaborate constantly. The choir and orchestra also perform individually, but they are part of the same project.
