European Jazz School Santa Sofia 2021

With a wonderful workshop in Santa Sofia, the participants were able to meet each other in real life for the first time since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic and it was great. This small town of Santa Sofia with about 4000 inhabitants, with an active music school and committed people, managed to invite about 25 musicians from the partner regions of Bursa, Emiglia Romagna, Hesse and Wielkopolska to Santa Sofia and to implement this beautiful workshop in Italy with great success. For many students were able to get to grips with music here in a very unusual way and also with the different musical worlds. Each of the five bands was musically accompanied by a lecturer. The fact that the parents of the director of the music school cooked great Italian food for all of us every day made the atmosphere all the nicer. The hospitality behind it was exceptionally refreshing and beneficial, especially after the Covid years.

European Jazz School Online 2021

Due to the Covid situation, the European Jazz School could not take place in 2020 and also in 2021, as both Hessentage events in Bad Vilbel and in Fulda had to be cancelled.

All the more pleasing was the promise of the Hessian State Chancellery to support the Jazz School within the framework of an online project. Communication and lessons were conducted exclusively online. Even the music could not be played together, but everyone had to record their part alone. A situation that usually only occurs in recording studios. In this case, however, over thousands of kilometers away.

It was a blessing to be able to meet again at least in this way!

The results can be seen and heard in the following videos.
