Copenhagen Summer Jazz 2020

Music moves us. We use it to inspire ourselves, motivate ourselves, and to relax. It’s there for all the important moments of our lives: to help us come together, to celebrate, to remember, to love. In a way, it is the most human thing we do, making and enjoying music. Bang & Olufsen’s live music series celebrates that spirit.

Bang & Olufsen presents Copenhagen Summer Jazz 2020, featuring Benjamin Koppel & Friends - CELEBRATI NG ARETHA with Karen Mukupa, Kaya Brüel, Maria Montell, Marie Carmen Koppel and Szhirley Band: Jesper Bodilsen, Søren Bebe, Espen Laub von Lilienskjold. Five of the biggest Danish female singers celebrate the late, great Aretha Franklin with songs from her versatile repertoire through five decades, presented in groovy, new jazz-arrangements. The concert will take place on Friday 3rd.

To close the Festival, another ensamble featuring Mark Linn, Christian Hjelm, Michael Møller, Benjamin Koppel, BANDANE and a string quartet will perform a tribute to David Bowie on Saturday, July 11th.
