The BMW Welt Jazz Award takes place for the second time. Under this year’s topic “Voices in Jazz”, six bands/artists perform –free of charge- at the BMW Welt. A jury chooses the best two artists for the final which takes place on April 17th. Then, the audience elects the winner of the award which comes with a prize money of 10000 € for the first and 5000 € for the second prize. In the last year, the ACT artist Trio [em] Wollny / Kruse / Schaefer received the first price at the BMW Welt Jazz Award.
