The big band of the University of Mannheim, known as the College Jazz Orchestra, consists of 20 musicians and offers a comprehensive program which is renewed and extended every semester. Its leader is Jochen Welsch. In addition to big band classics by Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Peter Herbolzheimer, the band’s repertoire also includes swing compositions from film and pop music, as well as funk songs by Tower of Power. The musicians are mostly students of the university, but some graduates are also part of the band.
