Enjoy Jazz School Big Band

As is well known, the past two pandemic years were a pretty lean and hard time for professional musicians. But also for young talents, especially pupils playing together in bands, it couldn't have gone worse: Not much was possible; lessons and joint rehearsals fell victim - like so much else - to the various Corona waves. So it is all the more pleasing that this year the Enjoy Jazz School Big Band will be back on stage with a new programme. The ensemble regularly gathers the most distinguished talents of the school big bands of several grammar schools from the region, aged 13 to 18. The project was launched back in 2012 - as a sustainable initiative to promote young talent, which is very important to both the Enjoy Jazz Festival and the supporting BASF. In the meantime, several years of students have passed through the ensemble, the repertoire has been constantly expanded and the band has dared to tackle ever more complex pieces and tasks. A band benefits from continuity, even if the fluctuation of young members is naturally high. Each year, it is possible to build on the foundations laid beforehand. The success of this can be seen not only in the performances. An indication of the high quality of the work is also the fact that some young musicians have decided to study music after their school years, encouraged by the experience gained in the big band. However, one person who played a major role in the development of the project and actively accompanied it for years as band leader is missing: Michael Hilprecht died in May 2021, at the age of only 43. Many thoughts will be with him this evening, and one or the other piece is likely to remind us of him. Exactly what programme awaits the audience, however, has not yet been decided. In any case, it will be rousing.
