JMI Jazz World Orchestra

Join the JM Jazz World Orchestra 2016!

Applications are now open.

Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) invites you to apply for the 2016 edition of the JM Jazz World Orchestra!

The JM Jazz world is an international jazz big band for the globe's best young musicians. In 2016 acclaimed trombonist Luis Bonilla (USA/Costa Rica) returns to lead the orchestra. They will meet for a weeks' intensive rehearsal in July before heading of to tour Europe's summer jazz circuit.


The 2016's inspiring musical and intercultural experience will be hosted by JM Germany at the JMI World Meeting Centre in Weikersheim, Germany from the 28th of June to the 5th of July 2016. There musicians can look forward to a week of jazzy fun in an idyllic setting where they will learn, jam and prepare for the tour that is set to finish around the 15th of July (dates to be confirmed).


We are searching for talented musicians between the ages of 18 and 26 who play saxophone, trombone, trumpet, horn, tuba, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, piano and vocals (though other instruments are welcome). It is essential that you read sheet music, but most importantly, you gotta love jazz!

Find out more information and how to apply! 



"The overwhelming feedback we received throughout last years' tour only fuels our desire to repeat our efforts for the Summer of 2016. We are ecstatic to present new faces and new music to audiences across Europe with a freshness that only the JM Jazz World Orchestra presents!"
