30 years of jazz at the kulmbach municipal music school are truly a reason to celebrate. Therefore, the music school invites you to join us under the motto "it’s jazztime" to two anniversary events.
Music school director harald streit emphasizes that the history of jazz at the music school already goes back a long way. "The main contributor was our music teacher thomas schimmel. It was he who set up the jazz stylistics department at the music school in 1989, which soon developed into the first big band called "swing pink developed. The first jazz session was held in 1994, and since then it has been held once a month".
On saturday, 19. October, the t-jazz big band under the direction of thomas schimmel will make the kommunbrau swing at 7 p.M. Afterwards, at about 8 pm, the teacher-big-band-bavaria will give a guest performance in the kommunbrau. Tickets for the anniversary evening are available from 1. October for sale at the tourist information office of the city of kulmbach. The lehrer-big-band- bavaria consists of over 45 active members, all of whom are teachers at general education schools from all over bavaria.
Like every third monday of the month, on 21. October at 20 o’clock in the kommunbrau a jazz session will take place. On this day, however, there is a special feature: many former students have registered to come and will show off their musical talents during this anniversary session.
The entire population is cordially invited to both events. Mayor henry schramm also congratulates the jazz department of the municipal music school on its 30th anniversary: "the jazz scene in and around kulmbach has been massively enhanced by our music school and its dedicated teachers and musicians. Many thanks for this and to the 30. Happy birthday and good luck for the future", so ob schramm.
