Cologne Contemporary Jazz Orchestra will be playing live with HOMEGROWN Vol.2 on Sunday June 11th at 18h at Loft Köln (Wissmannstr.30 50823 Köln).
As with the 20th anniversary last year, the CCJO, recently nominated for the German Jazzprice, is focusing on the band’s own composers and arrangers at this concert and offers them the space and scope to implement their musical visions with the big band. In addition to compositions by WDR Jazz Prize winners and band members Marko Lackner, Jürgen Friedrich and Jens Düppe, new compositions and arrangements by band members Mathew Halpin, Francois de Ribeaupierre, Christian Winninghoff, Andreas Schickentanz and Ben Degen will also be heard.
This concert is funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science NRW.
