Let's swing | HNU-Jazzcombo

Gig of the HNU-Jazzcombo in December 2012 with the founding members Felix Nassal, Theo Schwarzwälder, Dr. Eric Koenig, Thomas Dirr, Sarah Lindner, Marcel Brenner, Joachim Kirsten (from left to right)

Students and members of the staff play in the HNU-Jazzcombo.  Our repertoire includes swing, latin and blues jazz pieces. 

We accompany HNU events, graduation or alumni celebrations at the university or also in the Castle at Illertissen (south of Neu-Ulm).

We are open to all musicians, male or female, who play their instruments well. They need to be able to read music or chord symbols (harmony instruments). Knowing how to improvise is quite welcome, but not a prerequisite.

During the semester we rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7:15 to 8:45 pm. Tasks also include performances as well as individual practising of our pieces.

The HNU-Jazzcombo is part of the HNU-cultural programme and can be counted as an elective course with 2 credit points. Thomas Dirr is the musical leader of the HNU-Jazzcombo. He studied „Jazz and Popular Music“ at the Cologne Music Academy (thomasdirr(at)t-online.de or www.ohnebasskeinspass.de).
