The Russian Ambassador meets with the head of National jazz orchestra of Luxembourg
On March 13, 2013 the Russian Ambassador in Luxembourg H.E. M.Entin met with the head of National jazz orchestra of Luxembourg (NJOL) Gast Waltzing.
Founded in 2005, the ONJL provides a platform for the upcoming talented jazz musicians to hone their skills, write for the formation and play with musicians of the same caliber. The ONJL looks to contribute to the renewal of the literature for the Big Band as an art form, each member of the formation is encouraged to write for the band and the ensemble actively seeks outside contributors and collaborations. In this manner, a large and varied new original repertoire for the big band is created.
The Russian Ambassador and Gast Waltzing discussed the concert and touring activity of NJOL in Russia and the participation of Russian musicians in jazz events at the sites of Luxembourg. They agreed on further cooperation.
