Charlie »Bird« Parker shaped modern jazz like no other musician. Even today, his music influences jazz players worldwide. His 100th birthday in 2020 prompted the internationally celebrated album “Bird Lives”, which was produced together with co-arrangers Magnus Lindgren and John Beasley.
“Bird Lives” was also the big winner at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony. Now this brilliant music can be experienced live – and it’s an evening not just for jazz fans. The two co-arrangers Beasley and Lindgren and the SWR Big Band form the perfect team. High intensity and strong emotions are just as much part of the experience as the exceptional interactions on the stage, which promise truly special, vibrant moments.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.
