“I am very excited to be a part of this year’s Jazzaar Festival 2023! I hope to have an intense time working with Fritz K. Reynold and the invited guests from the rehearsals, the workshops, and the concert, as well as useful inputs that will enrich my future musical career. Also, this festival offers me the opportunity to network with other young musicians of the Swiss jazz scene!”
