Cologne Open - discover the jazz scene "made in NRW"

The occasion for the COLOGNE OPEN is the "Artistic Exchange Platform" (AEP) which will be taking place at the Stadtgarten on march 1st - 2nd. The AEP will bring together about 20 different artistic directors of Jazz festivals and venues to discuss the artistic aspects of their programming. Organizers of this very new event are the European Jazz Network (EJN) and the Opening as a “European Center for Jazz and Contemporary Music“ at Stadtgarten.

Due to the assembly of that much artistic directors the Stadtgarten decided to host a showcase festival with some of the finest young jazz groups in Cologne. Both evenings of 1st and 2nd March will host some of the most interesting and influential young musicians of the local scene on the stage of concert hall and studio 672 at Stadtgarten. This gives a chance to discover the lively and creative jazz scene "made in NRW" not only to the artistic directors but also to the local audience - which we warmly invite to join us for this event! The German journalist and long time insider of the Cologne jazz scene, Hans-Jürgen Linke, put together four to five bands for each of those two nights.
