Big Band Tartu met a lot of guest conductors and other big bands during all the years of activity, with whom we continued to communicate. So we know our sommon interests, wish to lissen and share eachothers music and ideas, like to meet and study something new. Thatfor we organize 8th International Happy Big Band Weekend 9-10th of April 2022 in Tartu and Tallinn, Estonia.
Star of this weekend will be Mr. Jievaras Jasinskis - conductor, trombonist and composer from Lithuania, who will take with him his orchestra Kaunas Big Band. Of course we waited here much more foreign guests, but the covid-situation didn't allow others to come.
From our Estonian friends will participate big-bands of different music schools of Estonia - Eller Big Band, conductor Tanel Aavakivi, Jazzband of Viimsi Music School, conductor Maret Melesk and Otsa Kooli Big Band, conductor Bianca Rantala.
From local forces will help us Big Band Tartu as organizer, who has the pleasure and honour to perform with Mr. Jievaras Jasinskis, playing his and other Lithuanian pieces.
