Jam Session Featuring The Youth Jazz Orchestra of Saxony

Our monthly Jam has a new twist this time with guests from Saxony joining in. The Youth Jazz Orchestra of Saxony under the care of the Saxon Music Council is a bigband that brings together highly talented young musicians from all over Saxony. Some are still pupils, others students at the local music conservatoires in Dresden and Leipzig. We are delighted to have these fine musicians join our established house band for what promises to be a great jam session.

All musicians welcome to come along and join in, or just come to listen and enjoy our great jazz vibe. Free entry.
