The Big Band likes to perform classic pieces of swing and jazz music. Additionally arrangements by, for example, Peter Herbolzheimer, Bob Mintzer, Quincy Jones, Sammy Nastico and even band membes belong to the repertoire of the Big Band of HSD.

The band also tries to focus on a different musical area each academic year.

​The HSD Big Band was founded in 2004 by Prof. Hubert Minkenberg and is directed by Martin Reuthner since 2014. Martin Reuthner is a trumpeter, pedagogue, composer and arranger.
