Reservation and contact

Audi Forum Ingolstadt

85045 Ingolstadt

This is not least due to the successful cooperation with the organiser of the concert, the Birdland Jazz Club Neuburg. Its impresario Manfred Rehm uses his global contacts to consistently bring the best formations to Ingolstadt.

In the last 15 years , there have been guest appearances from big names such as the Count Basie Orchestra, Freddie Hubbard, Paul Kuhn, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, Chris Barber, Bill Ramsey, Freddie Cole, and Max Greger Junior.

The concerts produced four live CDs. The "Live On Stage" event (Warner) that Klaus Doldinger played in 2007 with his long-term formation passport in the museum mobile is now legendary. The production was awarded an "Echo Jazz" in the category "Best Live Album" in 2010.

Audi and the Birdland Jazz Club Neuburg present the concerts of various jazz directions from January to June and from September to December.

The Big Chris Barber Band


Already a living legend, in 2017 Chris Barber seems as restless and ageless than ever. At 86, he continues to do extensive tours and he has the same power and coolness as he did when he started his career almost seven decades ago.


Christian Elsässer Jazz Orchestra


Handpicked:This attribute, which is often associated with Christian Elsässer's body of sound, is on point. In addition, the Jazz Orchestra of the young pianist from Munich certainly deserves its rating of "outstanding". Because no other ensemble in Germany is currently as virtuoso and willing to take risks with the various metres, harmonies, moods, and styles than this big band.


International Hot Jazz Quartet + 2


Did you know? 2017 celebrates the first jazz record for its 100th birthday. It was recorded in 1917 by the original Dixieland Jazz band. A milestone of modern music that the International Hot Jazz Quartet now wants to celebrate with two distinguished guests at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt.


Don Menza Big Band


When talking about the Munich jazz scene, there are two names that always come up: the fabled "domicile" on Siegesstraße and the American tenor saxophonist Don Menza. But while the "domicile" has long since become part of Bavarian cultural history, its former house saxophonist Menza is still alive and kicking and full of enthusiasm.
