The JUGENDJAZZORCHESTER.CH offers talented Swiss musicians the chance to work on a program written especially for the ensemble over a period of several months and then perform it as part of a nationwide tour. Thus, in addition to the existing offers in the orchestra and chamber music sector in Switzerland, there is finally also continuous support in jazz, as far as large formats are concerned.
The JUGENDJAZZORCHESTER.CH is under the artistic direction of Benjamin Weidekamp. Even if the compositions are explicitly created for the current instrumentation – in jazz there are rarely completely through-composed forms.
