Bandstand Learning with Role Models .
Jazzaar’s youth development and cultural exchange project was developed in Aarau, Switzerland in 1992 by Fritz K Renold & Helen Savari.
The concept is such that professional musicians of high caliber in the international music scene are put together with selected young emerging artists between the ages of 16 and 26 years old to study and prepare a musical work, originals and ‘standards’ that are specifically arranged and orchestrated for this orchestra for a final performance often as premiers before a large audience.
Besides equipping young musicians for a professional career, this programme also provides a reality check for talents not destined for the road to re-direct their focus early in life on careers other than music performance for better job satisfaction in future, while maintaining the love of music as a hobby.
