Brundibar Arts Festival is the first and only annually reoccurring festival in the UK dedicated to music and arts created by victims of the Holocaust.
There is vast evidence of Jazz having been played in concentration camps during the war. In Sachsenchausen, the “Sing-Sing Boys”, the Mauthausen mini-jazz band, the Buchenwald Jazz orchestra and in Terezin the “Ghetto Swingers “.
For Brundibár Arts Festival’s first ever jazz event we will be focusing on Terezin. We will be looking specifically at the musical arrangements of Fritz Weiss who wrote for and played with the Ghetto Swingers and who was killed in Auschwitz.
Come and hear arrangements of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, Gershwin’s tunes “I’ve Got Rhythm” & “You Can’t Stop Me Dreaming” and many more…
Our Jazz performance is going to be a homage to the influence of swing and jazz music on the culture of Europe during WWII.
