BuJazzO is the world's only national youth jazz orchestra. The high caliber of the next generation of musicians makes it shine out throughout Europe and it is an internationally recognized force in the jazz orchestra landscape.
Up to the upper age limit of 24 years, a constantly changing stream of young jazz artists exhibiting exceptional abilities with their instruments and the art of improvisation play in BuJazzO. These young musicians cross paths with outstanding professional jazz musicians from around the world who are available to them as instructors and conductors. Throughout the regular rehearsal periods, musical as well as personal guidance plays and important role in creating a network between the young artists and the experienced instructors and professionals. The conductors change their programs and teams twice a year to foster new experiences, experiments, and admirable results from the intense work.
For over 20 years now, over 400 alums have successfully passed through BuJazzO, among them many well-known musicians such as Till Brönner and Roger Cicero.
