Press kit of the 18th Enjoy Jazz Festival 2016
This year, Enjoy Jazz invites artists from all over the world to present their creative work on the stages of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region for the 18th time: You can look forward to established world stars and young hopefuls, globetrotters and local heroes, jazz and otherwise. Whether classical standards, the latest trends or experimental music, the programme offers extreme diversity and features premieres and exclusive collaborations.
Of course, the popular event series that Enjoy Jazz has introduced over the years will not be missing. And there is reason to celebrate! Both the Enjoy Jazz Matinees and the Enjoy Jazz Masterclasses have their 10th anniversary this year. The matinees, which have always attracted many top-class guests, have established the tradition of dealing with jazz in an enjoyable and critical way through lectures and discussions. The master classes give young musicians the opportunity to get in touch with jazz stars and learn from them. And finally, Enjoy Jazz Cinema, a popular cinema series showing films about epoch-making musicians, has been reintroduced.
Furthermore, it is a special pleasure for the Enjoy Jazz Festival this year to be able to present the newly founded board of trustees, which is to be an impulse for new creative processes of the festival and to support the future strategic planning of the Enjoy Jazz brand. The foundation of the board of trustees will be taken as an opportunity to rethink, openly question and further develop the promising and successful approaches and projects that already exist with a wide variety of players.
