Lübeck Academay of Music (MHL) Bigband in Taiwan


Due to several invitations, the MHL Bigband gave concerts and workshops at the Kuandu Arts Festival in Taipei and the Jazzfestival in Taichung in September and October. 25 musicians not only presented their newest songs of their CD “Timeless Changes-LübeckSounds”, but also especially for the Taiwan tour composed musical pieces. Bernd Ruf, conductor of the MHL, established several contacts to Academies of Music in Taiwan during the last two years. He found a Bigband at the Taipei National University of Arts (TNUA), where previously only classical music was taught. A highlight was the performance of the MHL Bigband together with the TNUA Bigband at the Kuandu-Festival.
