The Liceu Big Band is one of the few stable ensembles of its kind in our country that offers a completely professional experience. It has established itself as one of the essential ensembles on the city’s jazz scene, and is directed by one of the most expert Big Band arrangers in the country, Sergi Vergés.
The Liceu Big Band has a wide artistic career that provides the students of the Bachelor in Jazz and Modern Music at the Conservatori Liceu with a unique experience of being able to play in a group of these characteristics. His repertoire usually fluctuates with the compositions and arrangements of great Big Band figures such as Thad Jones, Bob Mintzer, Vince Mendoza, Bob Brookmeyer, Ed Neumeister, Gordon Goodwin or Maria Schneider.
The Liceu Jove is presented as a very attractive musical proposal that helps students fully prepare for their leap into the professional world while they are in their training period. It also provides a great opportunity for music lovers in the city to access repertoires of great interest and multiple formats (from the intimacy of chamber music to the large format of symphonic and operatic productions), as well as with a great stylistic variety (from great lyrical works to contemporary and newly created repertoire, passing through jazz and modern music).
Thanks to the patronage of the Fundació “la Caixa”, the public can have access to a wide range of music in a magnificent space, the Auditori Conservatori Liceu, a space located in the heart of Barcelona’s Raval neighborhood, fully consolidated and recognized as one of the best venues of its kind in our country.
You provide the music, we bring you to the stage!
