SRH Band Contest

The SRH Band Contest has been developed as a competition for School Bands. Three bands from the genres Rock/Pop and Jazz/World Music from the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan area contest with their interpretation of of well-known hits, creative own compositions or Jazz standards. A high-calibre jury of experts selects six bands from all applicants, who then receive a professional, two-day coaching by well-known musical greats of the German music world.

In addition to the well-known Jazz voice Fola Dada (among others SWR Bigband) and Jazz trumpeter Thomas Siffling, Michael Herberger from Söhne Mannheims and other musicians are  present as coaches.

After the coaching the bands show their music skills at a show, where the winner is chosen by a top-class Jury and the audience.

The winner bands are then invited to a live-performance as a pre-show at a concert at a laureate concert.
