Welcome to UUJO

Welcome to the big band and jazz department at Uppsala university. Uppsala University Jazz Orchestra (UUJO) is the first university big band in Sweden under proffessional leadership open for students from all faculties and university employees. The artistic leader of UUJO is Ulf Johansson Werre - one of the most highly respected Swedish jazzmusicians.

UUJO is a permanent big band active in several concert projects every year, both at the university and for a general public. Our concerts range stylistically from classical big band repertoire to contemporary compositions and originals. We regularly cooperate with prominent guest artists.

Spring and fall concerts are usually held in the university Grand Auditorium and the traditional Christmas concert at a church in Uppsala center.

We participate in other internal events at the university, as well as in national and international events.

You can engage UUJO for concerts, dance evenings and for smaller events where anything from pianotrio and up is suitable. If you have questions please contact Ulf Johansson Werre.
