The Liberty Orchestra created, by Swinging Europe in Denmark, as part of the Liberty EU programme has hosted a whistle-stop tour of Jazz musicians from across Europe in a short but sweet residency project. The intense residency lasted just 10 days: 2 days rehearsal, 6 days touring and 2 days recording. Venues included a departure center for asylum seekers, a library, an art museum and even a local swimming pool! 

Swinging Europe has a long tradition and experience in gathering musicians together both nationally and internationally to form touring project bands. The 8 musicians from 7 different cultural backgrounds were put together in a summerhouse outside Herning, where they rehearsed the composer and bandleader Kenneth Dahl Knudsen’s music. The “inside-out” concerts -as described in the project description- were held in unusual venues in the region and concentrated around the cities Herning, Aarhus and Aalborg.
