The Jazz Playground - Musical Journey To Brazil

TICKETS ARE $30 PER CHILD. FREE FOR PARENTS Musical Journey to Brazil. Jazz is a type of music that loves to borrow ideas from other styles and indeed other places in the world. We take a trip to Brazil to explore how the distinctive sound and feel of jazz in Brazil came about and how Bossa Nova came to represent ‘peace and love’ in the 1960s The Jazz Playground is a fun, interactive and educational live performance program inviting kids and adults of all ages to dance, sing and swing to the rhythms of jazz. Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards. Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.  More Info
