Hello dear all,

I hope you’re enjoying the summer so far!
In June I spend some time in beautiful Florence and played concerts with my great colleagues Arne Huber, Claudio Sbrolli and Giovanni Pecchioli.
Million thanks to the German Institut in Florence and the European University Institute for making this musical experience possible.
After a full week teaching at the Academy in Remscheid with a wonderful team of teachers and hard working students, I was invited to play an open air concert as part of the Festspiele Wetzlar at their unique amphitheater. The week after I was happy to play with the great Caecilie Norby and her band at the Ystad Jazz Festival. It was a joy to see many of my friends again and play together at that gorgeous historic venue. I am looking forward to more upcoming concerts with Caecilie in the fall and next spring in Danmark, Germany and Switzerland.
At the moment I am preparing the second episode of my SWR2 radio show „Female Jazz Piano“, honoring the music and careers of all these amazing women and role models. The next show will be aired on October 26. and will also be available at the SWR2 mediathek online.
I am looking forward to play a concert with Achille Succi and Batu Salliel's band at Nardis Jazz Club in Istanbul/Turkey in November. Many thanks to the Jazzverband Baden-Württemberg for supporting this great project. The rest of that week I will be teaching at the Uludag University in Bursa/Turkey for the European Jazz School, an always inspiring workshop with talented students from Turkey, Italy, Poland and Germany.
I can’t wait to play more concerts with my wonderful trio soon and to reunite with great trombonist Adrian Mears. More jury work and other things are coming up and in December I will also play some more solo concerts and share the stage with fantastic colleagues. I will keep you posted.

Hope to see you somewhere! Best wishes,

Anke
