Young musicians needed - where can I find them for an event

Hi there,

I am now in the process of organising my wedding and I am a bit stuck when it comes to entertainment. Do you know where to look for young musicians (students) for a wedding entertainment? I mean, we are not crazy about very professional commercial bands, we are more keen to hire some motivated and young aspiring musicians... Further, for the wedding ceremony itself we would like to hire a single performer (ideally, trumpet) for about 20 mins. Any ideas where to search?

I found this one: http://www.hslu.ch/musik/m-dienstlei...m-ensemble.htm (only downside is that number of performers is quite limited)

Can you recommend smth similar?

Merci

Re: Young musicians needed - where can I find them for an event

You could do worse than turn up at the Jazzbaragge on Wednesday evenings in Zurich. Free entry to a mixed group of music students earning their stripes playing jazz to the public. After around midnight, the tutors and some real talent finish their fourth beer and push the kids outta the way and have a jam themselves. Worth the wait, usually.

Talk to anyone in there - it's quite an open and friendly place - and see the performers live. There's sure to be someone who could help.

Give Zurich's Uni of the Arts' Musik Department a call:
http://www.zhdk.ch/index.php?id=717

They have a whole talent pool of budding musicians specialising in various instruments. The latest winner of the Chopin competition is from there. I am very sure that there will be people grateful for the performance experience and extra cash.

Alternatively, the Zurich Konservatorium is a good bet

Thank you for the suggestions! I will definitely contact them.

... and jazzbaragge looks like a next find given that casa bar changed its format.
