UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra is organizing an online composition masterclass in collaboration with the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria and Sibelius Academy of the Uniarts Helsinki

The online livestreams are free and open for anyone interested. The livestream can be watched on UMO Helsinki’s Mobile App and YouTube channel for seven days. The discussion will be in English and can be participated in the comment field of the YouTube video or if you watch via app, you can email your question to niina(at)umohelsinki.fi.

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra plays new music written by composition students, which provides discussion and valuable feedback between the students and the orchestra. The orchestra and the discussion will be conducted by Ed Partyka.

Composition students have been selected for the project in collaboration with the universities. A total of 14 students from 9 countries are involved. Sibelius Academy of the Uniarts Helsinki 16–19 November presents composers Susanna Veldi, Selma Savolainen, Oskari Siirtola, Héctor Lepe, Juho Valjakka, Mikko Sarvanne and Sami Leponiemi.

The free UMO Helsinki app is available for Android and iOS devices.

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Ed Partyka works as a professor for Jazz Composition & Arranging at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. He also currently coaches student composers and arrangers at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.

– Probably the most valuable experience for a young composer is to have their music played by a professional, world-class jazz orchestra, and get some feedback and support directly from the musicians. This is wonderful opportunity for UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra to delve deeper into the area of jazz education at the university level, and the orchestra will “meet” some of Europe’s most talented young writers. Helping to support emerging artists is something that has always been a part of UMO’s DNA, and this new project will broaden the scope of that support. And, who knows, maybe some future UMO composer/arrangers will be among the students involved in this new and exciting project, says Ed Partyka.

The masterclasses are part of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s audience outreach.
