Jazz Campus Mainz is an international artistic education program affiliated with the School of Music at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.

It is based on two pillars: The Gutenberg Jazz Collective, a first-rate education program for young professionals, and the Summer School as basic education for ambitious young people (preparatory course).

In addition, Jazz Campus Mainz will offer concert series, masterclasses and lectures.

The Canadian and Berklee alumna Ingrid Jensen has been hailed as one of the most gifted trumpeters of her generation and one of the most in-demand trumpet players on the global jazz scene.
Besides her artistic career, Jensen is also a dedicated jazz educator, having taught trumpet at the University of Michigan and Peabody Conservatory. She is currently serving as Interim Associate Dean and Director of Jazz Arts at Manhattan School of Music.
Since her victory at the Carmine Caruso Trumpet Competition in 1995, Jensen has since sat on the judges’ panel twice for said competition. She is regularly invited to trumpet festivals around the world and recently served as Artist-in-Residence at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival.

One of Ingrid’s most frequent and closest collaborators is her sister, saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen. The sisters release, Infinitude, featuring the brilliant guitarist Ben Monder, received heavy praise from the Jazz Community as did Ingrid’s latest recording, Invisible Sounds.
