In memoriam Harry Wijshoff
March 28, 2023
Today we received the sad message that our concertmaster Harry Wijshoff has passed away. For more than 10 years Harry played a central role in our orchestra. His musicality and enthusiasm have inspired all of us. We will miss him.
Welcome to the most sparkling music association in Leiden, the symphonic wind orchestra Leids Harmonie Orkest (Leiden Wind Orchestra).
On March 19 we played in the Lokhorstkerk in Leiden. Listen and watch this concert here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7GKe6vQRDU. Press the gear button and select the 1080px quality !
Our orchestra was founded in 1949 and has been part of Leiden's music culture ever since.
The Leids Harmonie Orkest is a podium orchestra, performing a varied repertoire of both classical and modern compositions for wind orchestra.
We generally look for unusual, original and seldomly heard wind pieces for concert band with an aim to contributing to the rediscovery and revival of fantastic music for symphonic band.
We hold regular concerts at various venues in - and sometime out of - Leiden throughout the year.
Listen to our musical new-year greetings !
