First Symposium

First symposium for jazz and improvised music in Sønderjylland/Schleswig-Holstein

May 14, 2017, an international jazzsymposium will take place in Sønderborg. German and danish musicians will meet and discuss music and the conditions for jazz and impovised music in the region.

The symposium precedes a new german-danish jazzfestival, opening later this year. The jazzfestival is a result of a collaboration between Lothar Baur from Flensburg and Niels Præstholm from Sønderborg . ”We hope to create an inspiring platform for new music related projects across the border” Præstholm explains.

The arrangement is closed to the public.
