The “Langnau Jazz Nights” LJN, celebrating the 20th anniversary this year, are more than just “another” jazz festival. Besides the nightly concerts with some of the best international musicians, the LJN offer a “Jazz Workshop” for adults, the “Junior Jazz Workshop” – and the “International Junior Jazz Meeting”.
This “festival within the festival” gives young aspiring players the opportunity to meet colleagues as well as internationally acclaimed stars in a great musical gathering – a unique event in Europe.
Younger than 26 and addicted to jazz
Applicants should be no more than 25 years old and the music performed should have to do with jazz in some sort of way.
The festival offers accommodation and food as well as free tickets to all connected concerts.
Feedback by professional jazz musicians
After performing, the concert will be discussed in a feedback workshop with a teacher of the Jazz Workshop. There are possibilities to rehearse and have jam sessions. Applicants from abroad get a contribution to travel expenses.
