The Liceu Conservatory Auditorium has consolidated itself, in recent years, as one of the reference centers of the Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival of Barcelona. Every autumn, jazz becomes the star of the Auditorium season with masterclasses and jam sessions organized by the Liceu Conservatory. The Auditorium also hosts several concerts of this world-class festival, making our Center one of the neuralgic points of the current jazz scene thanks to the visit of real international names of the genre. Terence Blanchard, Fred Hersch, Chick Corea, Tomatito, The Bad Plus, Ambrose Akinmurie, Chucho Valdés, Jack DeJohnette, Marc Copland, and many more have all visited our Auditorium stage!
At the Liceu Jazz, you can meet the musicians you love most and listen to their advice before seeing them in concert. Students are also invited to participate actively in the festival’s cycle through the “Carta Blanca” concert cycle, as well as the usual participation of the emblematic Liceu Big Band. Therefore, it is a concert cycle that integrates students into the professional activity in a high-level bill.
