On April 25, 2018 the annual Rock, Pop, Jazz concert of the music and art school J.A.P. Schulz took place in the small hall of Uckermärkische Bühnen Schwedt (ubs). Teachers and students of the music school could be heard, who presented a wide musical spectrum mainly in ensembles.
With charm and humour Lennart Johs and Jonathan Eichhorn guided through the program with the help of the “RPJM” (Rock Pop Jazz Machine). I was thrilled by the quality of the contributions and the fantastic hall of the ubs. Everything seemed very well organised: Changes on stage were bridged by the moderation, everyone knew where to stand and there were no noticeable glitches.
I especially liked the percussion ensembles. The sound of drums paired with the marimba and vibraphone is simply bombastic and can take me into a completely different world. The rock band around Dennis Heinrich and the big band of the music school were also huge. The only drawback is that I have to wait another year for the next event. Maybe I’ll be on stage then? Or students of mine? We’ll see!
