Bigband Celebration!

PICK OF THE DAY Concerts & Music jazz
In the organizer's words:

Admission: 18:00 | Start: 19:00 |

At the end of the anniversary year "10 years of Big Band Port Hamburg", the association will be putting on another big show. All three big bands - the EARLY BIRDS, the JAZZY BUSKERS and YO! JAZZ - will perform on this evening, celebrating the successful training of young musicians who have continuously developed their passion for big band jazz and grown with the association.

Swing, funk, rock and salsa as well as jazz classics and contemporary pieces by Hamburg jazz composers celebrate the end of the year and the integration into the young, lively Hamburg jazz scene. Finally, live performances in Hamburg clubs and spirited concerts at festivals again! With a revitalized sound and enriched by new members, the three ensembles are starting fresh into the projects of 2024. There is also a new bandleader: trombonist and composer Ken Dombrowski has been conducting the musicians of YO! JAZZ since September and is making his public debut in this role today. The EARLY BIRDS and JAZZY BUSKERS are led by trumpeter and artistic director of the Big Band Port, Paul Muntean.

The Big Band Port Hamburg e.V. is dedicated to the musical education and promotion of young people in the field of jazz. Since 2002, the EARLY BIRDS, the JAZZY BUSKERS and YO! JAZZ, three big bands/jazz ensembles graded according to age, have been part of the association. The young musicians, aged between 10 and 29, rehearse weekly under professional guidance and present their skills at concerts in and around Hamburg. The repertoire includes classics of big band literature, pieces from Latin, pop and rock as well as compositions and arrangements written especially for the big bands by the bandleaders or the musicians of the association.
