About Us

The University Orchestra Polyphonia Zürich is a symphony orchestra consisting of students and employees of the ETH Zürich and the University of Zürich. During each study semester we rehearse some pieces of classical orchestral literature and present them in our concert at the end of the semester.

Since the orchestra was founded, our aim has been to make music together without any great pressure to perform, but with high musical standards. Our approximately sixty orchestra members study various disciplines at different levels (from Bachelor to PhD). We also have numerous international students in our ranks. The promotion of exchange is therefore very important to us.

During the semester, we rehearse every Wednesday from 6pm to 9pm. You can find the exact rehearsal plan for the spring semester 2024 here.
