The Leids Harmonie Orkest (Leiden Wind Orchestra) consists of approximately 40 bandsmen. We are a podium orchestra with a traditional but broad instrument range.
Our members are of all ages, the average being around 35. Many members are from outside of Leiden but nevertheless feel very at home in our music association.
Rehearsals take place every Wednesday evening from 20.00 until 22.15. During the break and after rehearsal we have a bar where you can choose to relax with other members. A couple of times a year the rehearsal is followed by a get together where we lay on drinks and snacks. Traditionally we have an annual summer picnic just before the Leidse Hout (park in Northern Leiden) concert.
