The Big Band VS Campus consists of around 20 students, staff members and professors from the Cooperative State University Villingen-Schwenningen and Furtwangen University. Music styles range from classic blues numbers, swing and jazz to modern pop songs.
The Big Band VS Campus was founded during the 2008/2009 winter semester, and it makes regular appearances at a variety of events. For example, it played last year at the Schwenningen Culture Night, graduation celebrations for both universities and open-air concerts in front of the Mensa refectory. However, the highlights to date were its appearances at the IHK New Year’s get-together in the Theater am Ring and the Schwenninger Messe trade fair where it played in front of more than 1000 spectators.
Members change continually, due to the structure of studies at the universities, but professors and staff from both universities and the Musical Director, Andreas Schiller, ensure that the music goes on.
Rehearsals are held every Monday from 7.30 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. Naturally enough, new members are always warmly welcome. However, as we still do not have a permanent rehearsal room, it makes sense to contact us in advance by e-mail.
The International Club is a student group where German students and international students meet. They get to know each other, do activities and excursions during the semester, and the German students accompany and support the international students during their stay in Germany.
New members are warmly welcome in the International Club! In case of questions or interest, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
