Kongsberg Jazz Festival is organized this year from 3-6 July, and once again the city will be turned upside down! Kongsberg is known for cultivating many talented musicians, and we believe that the jazz festival and the workshop are an important reason for this. The parade and band workshops are organized in collaboration with Kongsberg Cultural School and are held at Søstrene Storaa's hotel. 

During these days, the emphasis is on working by ear - i.e. without notes and the instructors will teach improvisation. The workshops end with the jazz festival's opening parade, and/or a concert on one of the festival's outdoor stages. 

All the instructors are experienced musicians who participate in a number of renowned bands and musical projects. All also have national experience as instructors on various courses and in cultural contexts.

Recommended lower age limits for the workshops: 10 years parade workshop, 13 years band workshop
