O'JAZZ AMU - The AMU Big Band

In 2016, Aix-Marseille University has created, with Marseille Jazz from the five continents, a full Jazz orchestra, made up of students from all parts of the University and staff members. This is an ambitious initiative that places the project in line with the major American and Anglo-Saxon universities. The Orchestra accompanies all major university events and is a showcase for the AMU spirit in France and abroad.
