Piano Forum


Once a semester, the "Piano Forum" – led by Professor Sebastian Sternal – focuses on topics dealing with jazz piano such as "Tribute to Thelonius Monk" or "Electric Piano," and includes all students of jazz piano. These are often interdepartmental collaborations –  jazz and classical music were combined, for example, in "Herbie Hancock meets Ravel." Concerts take place in the Roter Saal of the college of music, and have become one of the highlights of the jazz piano class.
