Known for their exceptionally high musical standards and innovative performances,
BuJazzO is Germany’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra, comprised of musicians selected from competitive national auditions. BuJazzO delivers the best-of-the-best young jazz talents from Germany across the international stage, including stops in Berlin, Tel Aviv, New York City, and Chicago. Returning to Rochester after last year's acclaimed performance at the International Jazz Festival, BuJazzO brings a celebratory flair to their international tour as they join the Rochester community for the July Fourth holiday. The films explore the 100th Anniversary of the Bauhaus art movement and combine rare footage from the George Eastman Museum archive with newly composed scores for big band by German and American jazz composers, including Bill Dobbins, Julia Huelsmann, Ansgar Striepen’s, and Gebhard Ullmann.
With family activities beginning at 3:00 pm, BuJazzO's 4:00 pm free concert brings international artistry to a national holiday and culminates in a free barbecue for the whole community this Fourth of July!
