The Blue Sky Messengers is a European-Mongolian Youth Jazz Orchestra established by EUNIC Mongolia in cooperation with European and Mongolian partners. It is composed of students, recent graduates and teachers from the music conservatories of Alborg, Paris, Munich, Klagenfurt and Ulaanbaatar.
The orchestra will be in Mongolia from the end of August to the beginning of September 2023. It will rehearse for one week at the Yeruu Lodge in Selenge Province and then give concerts at the Zaluuchuud Theatre in Darkhan (26.08.2023) and at Beatles Square (29.08.2023), the Philharmonic Hall (30.08.2023) and the Fat Cat Jazz Club (31.08.-02.09.2023) in Ulaanbaatar.
Prior to traveling to Mongolia, participating students and teachers will collaborate online to create a unique repertoire representing each participating country and Mongolia as the host country. Each country will be artistically represented by at least one composition or arrangement from its culture.
The project is funded by EUNIC, the Franco-German Cultural Fund as well as the implementing members of EUNIC Mongolia, the Alliance Francaise Oulan-Bator, the Austrian Embassy in Beijing, the Danish Cultural Institute in Beijing and the Goethe-Institut Mongolia with the support of the EU Delegation to Mongolia.
