Interview with Gilad Atzmon, International Jazzwerkstatt 2016, by Tali Atzmon.


Since 2010 "International Jazz Workshop" starts with an opening "all star" concert in the evening before workshops and classes begin. Groups made up of our internationally renowned artists play a very exciting and varied program and this gives the students and the public a taste of what will be happening for the rest of the festival week. Also in this "International Jazz Workshop" is the "bigband meeting" on the last day of the event.

2018 is the 14th anniversary of "International Jazz Werkstatt Saarwellingen". The team of outstanding performers and teachers and the varied schedule of activity all will added up to an unforgettable experience for everyone who takes part. The exceptional roster of internationally acclaimed artists/teachers will be expanded by the facility of "the open bigband", "masterclasses" and booking private lessons.

The final concert of the student combos still takes place - free entry - in the factory hall at Campus Nobel.
