Anicia Kohler

After years of classical training, directing choirs and playing keyboards in different bands in her youth, Anicia Kohler discovered jazz and the jazz piano. The new gained freedom in playing and the richness of the american songbook immediately appealed to her. She studied the jazz piano at the music academy in Basel (Switzerland), and went on to study orchestration and film scoring at the Berklee college of music online program. She works as a composer and bandleader. Many of her compositions for small and larger jazz ensembles were recorded and performed in the years after her graduation, as well as pieces for solo instruments like flute, guitar or vocals and a string trio which were performed and/or recorded in Switzerland, Athens, Singapore and New York.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
