The student bands honor the big band tradition. We always welcome the best of these student orchestras to our festival; their quality is really high, as is their dedication. They play with so much enthusiasm. Many jazz artists started their careers in student big bands (for instance: Roy Hargrove and Wynton Marsalis). The jazz school, part of the SKVR (Rotterdam Foundation for Training in the Performing Arts), started an ensemble for young musicians to learn how to play jazz and improvise. Les Coupe-Vents play a funky Latin-oriented repertoire, often suggested by the members of the band.
