INTERKULTUR congratulates on anniversary

Jazzchor Freiburg celebrates its 25th anniversary together with well-known guests

International Choral Scene

To mark the occasion on December 06, 2015 the Jazzchor Freiburg and its conductor Bertrand Gröger presented a musical ramble through the choir's history. Well-known interpretations of the past years sounded in the sold out concert hall and invited the audience to reminisce those special musical moments of the Southern German choir.  From Rock'n'Roll, Jazz and classical a cappella singing, Gospel and up to Soul – this choir gained international reputation in the field of popular choral music thanks to its mutability and at the same time stylistic precision.

Numerous guests of honour, who accompanied the choir for many years and gave artistic input, participated in this event. The American choral educator Roger Treece demonstrated his skills in the field of Jazz improvisation. Former choir members and creative minds enriched the concert programme with beatbox interludes, atmospheric saxophone sounds, Norwegian vocal singing (Torun Eriksen), low bass pitches (Tobias Hug, Swingle Singers) and also classical Soul, performed by Max Mutzke.

Since 25 years the Jazzchor Freiburg inspires its audience with outstanding projects regarding popular vocal music.  The choir constantly performs at international festivals e.g. in Russia (International Jazz Vocal Festival Russia), in France (Montreux Jazz Festival) and on the world's major stages. In 2002 the singers participated in the INTERKULTUR Choir Olympics in Busan/Korea and won the 1st place in the category "Vocal Jazz".

One year later the choir's conductor became a member of the jury at the International Choir Competition & Festival in Riva del Garda. Bertrand Gröger founded the Jazzchor Freiburg in 1990 and until today he is active as artistic director.

INTERKULTUR wishes to the Jazzchor Freiburg and its conductor all the best for the next 25 years!
