UP Arts manages a large variety of world-class concerts annually on the campuses of the University of Pretoria in its many theatres and halls to give added value to the cultural development of its students. Such concerts do not only involve internal University of Pretoria performers and role players, but also allow musicians from outside the University to perform to a large diversity of audiences. More than 25 free Leo Haese lunch hour concerts are regularly presented to afford promising music students of the University to perform to a live audience. Talented students, irrespective of their formal training, are given the opportunity to participate in making music through bodies such as TUKS Camerata, the UP Chorale, the UP Concert Choir and the University of Pretoria Symphony Orchestra (UPSO), while student cultural organisations such as STUKU allows a large group of students to participate in a great variety of cultural activities. World-class local and international musicians regularly perform in the Aula, Musaion and Groenkloof Auditorium as a result of co-operation and partnerships between UP Arts and external music partners and role players such as Salon Music, the Chamber Orchestra of South Africa and numerous foreign embassies in South Africa. UP Arts also accommodates the UP Youth Choir, and some of these members will later join the senior choirs.
