Musikplattform of ETHZ & UZH

Welcome to Musikplattform

The Musikplattform is the association of hobby musicians at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich and is intended for all students and staff members of both universities.

Music is a great way to unwind from the stress in the academic life. It is important that musicians have the possibility to network and to perform in front of an audience, so that they can share their passion with other like-minded individuals. This is line with the ideas of a former student and professor in Zurich: "Kreativität ist ansteckend. Gib sie weiter." (Albert Einstein)

You can find more information about our association here.

Our goals and offerings

We organize opportunities for hobby musicians at the ETH and Uni Zurich to meet each other, jam, learn, and perform. Check out the calendar, to find out when the next events will take place!

The Musikplattform membership is free and accessible for people having ETH/UZH email. The members can easily find and contact other musicians through the Music Network. They can also post "ads" on our bill-board to find fellow musicians to participate in their next project.

By signing up on the music network you can also receive a newsletter, where you stay up-to-date with an overview of all music-related activities happening on campus.

In the Information Portal part of the webpage you can find the centralized list of all active music groups (e.g. orchestras, choirs, bands, etc...) at ETH and UZH and how to contact them (currently a little out of date, we are working on updating this: if you know of more opportunities, please let us know!)

We also keep a list of (external) offerings for instrumental lessons, which you can find here.

For any questions, suggestions and criticism you can contact us via email. The Musikplattform is completely run by volunteers and we are always looking for helping hands. So please feel free to contact us if you are interested in helping us out!

Also, we are currently establishing a new repertoire of events, so if you have ideas on events you would like to see us organize, please contact us - although be prepared to help lead the organization of your idea. 🙂
