Scandinavian big band camp


I juli under Aarhus Jazz Festival var vi igen stolte af at være værter ved en youth big band camp. Gennem de sidste to år har vi haft besøg af unge, lovende og talentfulde big band musikere, hvilket resulterede i to inspirerende uger med læring, deling og samspil. I år genskabte vi sidste års succes under den nye titel: “Scandinavian Big Band Camp”, som fandt sted i Aarhus fra 17.-22. juli.

I år fik vi besøg af lettiske Melngailskolas Bigband og Codarts Young Talent Bigband fra Holland. I løbet af ugen deltog de i workshops, masterclasses og jam sessions sammen med Danish Youth Jazz Orchestra, og ugen sluttede af med opførelsen af det nyskrevne værk, Surroundings, skrevet af Aarhus Jazz Orchestras trompetist Jan Lynggaard Sørensen, hvor alle tre bands spillede sammen og fyldte hele Ridehuset med bigband surround sound.

Tusind tak til alle de deltagende bigbands for en fantastisk og inspirerende uge. Vi håber på at kunne invitere jer igen en gang i fremtiden!

 

In July during Aarhus Jazz Festival we were again proud to be hosting a youth big band camp. Two years in a row we have hosted big band camps for young aspiring and talented big band musicians, witch resulted in two inspiring weeks of learning, sharing and playing. This year we recreated the success of the first year under the new title: “Scandinavian Big Band Camp”, which took place in Aarhus, Denmark, from the 17th - 22nd of July.

This year we hosted the Latvian Melngailskolas Bigband and Codarts Young Talent Bigband from The Netherlands. During the week they attended workshops, masterclasses and jam session alongside with the Danish host bigband, Danish Youth Jazz Orchestra, and ended the week by performing the masterpiece, Surroundings, by Aarhus Jazz Orchestra trumpet player Jan Lynggaard Sørensen, featuring all three bigbands.

We thank all of the participating big bands for a fantastic and inspiring week, and hope to welcome you yet again some time in the future.
