Established in 2018, the EPFL BIG BAND is composed of jazz-infused campus students. This Big Band completes the wide realm of musical ensembles and aims to engage curious listeners or players on campus.


Directed by the 1st trumpeter Johannes Waibel, the band pushed its first notes in March of 2018. Throughout the years, the formation has gained momentum and widened its repertoire to George Gershwin standards, Count Basie or even Brazilian Samba. Today, the band is now under Samuel Urscheler’s direction.

If you want to join our Big Band, drop us an e-mail at bigband@epfl.ch and follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

We will ask you to schedule an audition before actually joining the band.
