Focusyear Band 19

Focusyear is a one-year program for an internationally assembled ensemble of students, who will be coached in a regular cycle by acknowledged masters of the international Jazz scene.

The students selected for Focusyear receive a full scholarship covering tuition and the cost of living, in order to allow them to focus on music exclusively.

Over the course of the year, the ensemble creates concert programs and records an album, which will be produced in the school’s own recording studio.

Line up:
Alexandra Hamburger(voc/fl)
Song-Yi Jeon (voc)
Santi de la Rubia (ts)
Vinicius Gomes (g)
Marc Mezgolits (bg)
Chase Kuesel (dr)

Jam Music Lab Quintett

The JAM Music Lab Quintet consists of five musicians around Jam Music student Robert Unterköfler.

On this evening they will be performing original compositions of the saxophonist from his current program called “Rote Welt”. The five musicians come from different musical directions and bring their individual accents to an exciting whole made up of both improvised and composed music. The familiar will interchange with the surprising, giving the audience a fresh and broad experience of contemporary jazz.

Robert Unterköfler – Saxophon
David Dornig – Gitarre
David Dolezel – Piano
Robin Gadermaier – E-Bass
Matheus Jardim – Schlagzeug
