The Bigband Sound of Science is the flagship jazz ensemble of Wageningen University composed of University staff, students and alumni. Started in 2003 as a coffee machine initiative of a few grass root musicians of the Environmental Science Group, the band evolved into a mixed group of researchers, students, teachers and others, playing a variety of Jazz, Latin, Swing, Blues and Funk music of world famous artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Michael Bublé and Amy Winehouse.
The band performs at events in and outside the University Campus, recently bringing the complete University community into a state of ecstasy at the opening of the 100-year anniversary of Wageningen University. In a series of festivities the Bigband also played unique specials together with the swinging bells of the newly inaugurated bell tower at the anniversary closing ceremony and a flashmob at the opening of the Academic Year 2019.
BigBand Sound of Science turns all activities into a swinging event! Feel free to contact us for more information.
