Christine Corvisier 5tet alias CC5:
The aesthetics and concept of the Christine Corvisier Quintet are based on a natural acoustic sound with plenty of room for improvisation and highlighting the solo qualities of all members of the band.
In each solo, they maintain creativity through interaction between the musicians, which often takes them in unexpected directions or atmospheres during concerts.

Christine Corvisier Solo Project:
The classical musical director Michel Rychlinski contacted Christine Corvisier to perform a solo program for the project „Chansons ohne Grenzen“ sponsored from the city of Cologne as much as the culture ministry of North Rhenania from Germany. He’s conducting a vocal ensemble who’s performing the work of Debussy, Hindemith,Ravel etc and wished to have Jazz Saxophone solo pieces between the choir songs.
The challenge was quickly accepted and got very well received from the audience and critics.
Rundfunk Tanzorchester Ehrenfeld von Jan Böhmermanns Neo Magazin Royal, ZDF:
Since 2 years, Christine Corvisier is often asked to play in this orchestra who’s weekly performing for the big german television channel ZDF.
Neo Magazin Royal started on ZDF Neo and got so popular and successful that it moved to ZDF since November 2020.
The Band is always playing songs related to the actual news and guests invited at the show. The arrangements are all originals from Lorenz Rhodes , Musical Director of the orchester and Christine Corvisier is performing all kinds of instruments during the show: Tenor, Alto, Baritone Saxophones, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, or Flute.
The name of the project is borrowed from the supercontinent that will possibly arise in 250 million years: In it, all of today’s continents will merge into one and all territorial borders will be overcome. The sound of the band already anticipates this distant future and combines musical influences from all over the world – collected during my extensive musical research trips. The debut album „Espacios Abiertos“ was praised as a „delightful redefinition of cross-cultural music“ (Jazzthing). The recently released second album „Camino a Mictlán“ is dedicated to the Mexican „Día de Los Muertos“, a tribute to life.
