The Orchestre des jeunes Jazzistes de Fribourg is a group of 16 young talents from Fribourg whose ages range from 13 to 28 years old. 5 saxophones, 3 trombones, 4 trumpets, double bass, drums, piano and voice are the various instruments that give life to this project launched by the saxophonist and composer Gerry Lopez.
The majority of the orchestra's members are pre-professional or professional musicians trained in institutions such as the HEMU, the HKB, the Conservatoire de Fribourg and the EJMA. The primary aim of this project is to provide a structure for the region's emerging talents interested in Jazz and contemporary music that will allow them to play in a large Jazz ensemble. The idea is also to make this musical genre more accessible to the new generations.
