Jorik Bergman and her large, imaginary, big band constellation


On the 28th of May Jorik will be drowning Stadtgarten in two sets of her newly written, original, up-to-the-minute big band compositions! There's songs about giraffes, cowboys, floating through space, BDSM, climate change and much more, performed together with her carefully selected, excellent batch of the finest jazz musicians she could find in the field. Besides a cute big band concert, the evening will also function as her final "Abschlusskonzert" of her masters at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in composition and arrangement.

Jorik Bergman (born 1996 in Leiden) is a Dutch jazz composer and flute player living in Cologne since 2020. Since moving to Germany she has won 1st prize at the 2022 composition competition "Das Zerbliche Paradies" from the JJO (Jugend Jazz Orchester) NRW, the 2021 composition competition "European Composers" from the Subway Jazz Orchestra, the 2022 composition competition "Zukunftsmusik" from the BundesJazzOrchester and the ACADÉMIE DE COMPOSITION JAZZ 2023 by the ONJ (Orchestre National de Jazz) in Paris.
