UniJAZZity, Jazz Orchestra for kids and young people Münsterland.

Cool, dynamic, musically innovative: UniJAZZity, the children and youth jazz orchestra Westfalen has made an excellent name in the music scene. The young big band, founded in 2009, stands for varied and fast-paced jazz across the various jazz styles and epochs - from the classic big band sound of the 1950s to Latin American rhythms to sensitive pop ballads.

After 2012, the young jazz orchestra won for the second time the competition organized by the Landesmusikrat NRW. In addition, UniJAZZity received the DEW21-Förderpreis, which is linked to a concert performance in the Dortmund jazz club Domicil.
