Prague JJ Conservatory Jazz Orchestra
A modern jazz big band consisting of students of the Jazz Department of the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory Higher Specialized School was started in 2005 under the tutelage of professor Milan Svoboda. The band specializes in original compositions mostly written by Milan Svoboda and the band members.
The band has performed on numerous occasions, among which: the Monterey Jazz Festival (California - 2008), a successful Asian tour in Taiwan and Vietnam, Trostberg (Germany - 2011), Marezijazz (Slovenia - 2012), Iserlohn and Dortmund (Germany - 2013) and the Bohemia Jazz Festival Prague (CZ - 2013). In 2010 the Czech Television Terra Musica program featured a documentary about the group's activities. In Prague the orchestra plays regularly at the Jazz Republic Music Club.
