The university choir, the university orchestra, the Unibigband and many other ensembles today offer music-loving students and teachers a creative field of activity. The University Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra with currently around 100 members. It was founded in 2004 and maintains a sponsorship with the MDR symphony orchestra. The university choir also has around 100 students and celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2006. It plays an important role in Leipzig's musical life, but also gives guest concerts throughout Europe, for example in 2008 in the largest Gothic church in the world, Seville Cathedral. His repertoire includes a cappella works from the 16th to 20th centuries, as well as large requiems and oratorios. The Leipzig University Choir regularly performs at university church services and university vespers in Leipzig's St Nicholas' Church and St Thomas' Church. The Unibigband, which was founded in 2006, can also look back on many successful concerts and is a prizewinner of the international big band festival "Swinging Saxonia".
