Big Band

Management: Detlef Landeck

The Big Band can trace its roots back to the time when the institute was founded in the 1970s. Although this makes it the oldest ensemble at the institute, it reinvents itself every semester with a different thematic focus. Concerts in the university, Bergpark, Schlachthof or Theaterst├╝bchen regularly leave an enthusiastic audience in their wake.
