To stand on the stage of the Elbphilharmonie and learn from the jazz greats such as clarinettist Anat Cohen or saxophonist Donny McCaslin: Elbphilharmonie Jazz Academy has been making this dream come true for many since 2021. For one week future professional musicians can work on their passion, namely jazz, under the guidance of professionals – this year Cohen and McCaslin, drummer Matt Wilson, pianist Sullivan Fortner, bassist Martin Wind and singer Clarice Assad. Instead of all going their separate ways after the final concert on 20 August, all participants are now coming together one final time for two concerts, with different line-ups, in Salzburg thanks to the collaboration of Jazz & The City and the Elbphilharmonie. Without any mentors, they present their own compositions and the results of a week at the Elbphilharmonie Jazz Academy.

Jazzit has existed since 2002 - a professional all-year business with diverse concert series. Jazzit has developed into an internationally renowned music club that has been regularly chosen as the "Greatest Jazz Venue" worldwide by Downbeat Magazine. The club's spectrum, which has already included up close and personal performances by stars like Pat Metheny, Al di Meola, John Scofield, Abdullah Ibrahim or Charles Lloyd, ranges from jazz and world music, to avant-garde and new electronic music. The jam sessions in the program are particularly noteworthy, taking place each Tuesday with free admission, giving many young people the opportunity to become familiar with the genre of jazz.


The bar is wheelchair accessible via the concert hall, the toilets are only accessible via steps.
