Jazz at the institute

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAConcerts take place regularly in the acoustically excellent vaulted cellar under the Jazz Institute. On Fridays, well-known and even less well-known musicians perform here. The concert series “JazzTalk” regularly invites, mostly German-speaking artists, to a discussion concert. In addition, the Verein zur Förderung des zeitgenössischen Jazz in Darmstadt e.V. organises its own concerts and the Bessunger Jam Session on the last Friday of each month. Incidentally, the association’s programme was awarded the “APPLAUS – Award for Programme Planning of Independent Venues” prize by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media in 2016, 2018 and 2019.

Jazz musicians from the region also use the concert hall for their own events, such as CD releases or presentations of new programmes. In the gallery on the top floor of the Jazz Institute as well as in the staircase and vaulted cellar we present changing exhibitions of jazz related artists and photographers.
