The UniBigBand is a jazz orchestra with enthusiastic hobby musicians, most of them are students and teachers at the University of Greifswald. They play together under the direction of Sarah Wolff.

The band’s repertoire is noted for its diverse range of music. The band enthrals its audiences with a captivating mixture of swing, soul and cool jazz. The UniBigBand performs at balls and at town, village or street festivals, at social events during conferences and symposiums and at other events. Look forward to a unique concert from Greifswald’s UniBigBand.
