German Bigband Comes to Harrow

On Wednesday, 31th May, Harrow Shanghai welcomed the forty talented young musicians who make up the Bigband at the Albert Einstein Gymnasium in Boeblingen, near Stuttgart, in south west Germany.

The Bigband are currently on a tour of China and we were delighted that they were able to find the time to visit Harrow. Although it is not a specialist music school, the Albert Einstein Gymnasium has a very similar music programme to Harrow, as all pupils at the school are encouraged to learn an instrument and to take part in music ensembles.

The Bigband performed a concert for the Lower School pupils and another for the Prep and Senior School pupils. They also gave our pupils an opportunity to perform with the band and learn about Jazz improvisation. Our sincere thanks go to the pupils and their music teachers, Mr Johannes Stephan and Mr Oliver Dermann.
