Enrollment Call

Enrollment Call per 8. February, 2008

This is to announce that every participant from Aargau who participated in “jazzaar concerts” 2007 within the age of 15 and 22, may be automatically recruited into the “jazzaar concerts” 2008 programmes – without an audition!

However, the choice to participate is still left to these young musicians. They are to report to by Saturday, 16th February to secure their place in participation with the following information:

Name/First Name:
Instrument in 2007:
Change of Home Address:
Change of Tel/Mobile:

The clauses below will nevertheless take effect in the final selection for performance:

  1. Where there are more participants than needed for one instrument, the best 2 or 3 will be chosen for the actual performances.
  2. Instrumentalists who participated as vocalists in 2007 will still remain vocalists this year.
  3. New recruits will be accepted if there are vacancies on orchestral seats (at the desired level of playing).

Since the project is generously subsidised by public and private funding, each participating student is only charged CHF300.- for a whole week of training with professionals in rehearsals, workshops, via coaching and inclusive of concert passes.


Where, What and When at jazzaar 2008?

Please download and print your respective itinerary below. Every student is expected to study their daily schedule to be punctual and well oriented at the jazzaar event from April 12 – 17.
