Lund University Academic Orchestra

Akademiska kapellet

The Lund University Academic Orchestra, with about 60 members, is the symphony orchestra of the Lund University students. The Conductor and Artistic Director is the University’s Director of Music, Patrik Andersson. The Lund University Academic Orchestra was established in 1745 to provide music for the University’s ceremonies and is thus Sweden’s third-oldest orchestra.
