Once again this year, the new National Music Centre has agreed to partner up with CADME to present the All-Ages Jazz Jam. The idea of the event is to provide “under aged” kids with an opportunity to attend and be a part of a supportive jazz jam. This is our 9th year and the initiative is really starting to pick up steam and become a staple for many students and programs alike. For the students that come out, it has been a great experience and it has been incredible witnessing the excitement, enthusiasm and support of everyone that shows up regardless of where they are at musically.
Again in an effort to make the jam as “friendly” and non-threatening as possible we have pre-selected tunes so that students can take a look at them and maybe even practice them prior to getting to the jam as opposed to just reading through fake books.
The date for the next jam this year is slated for Friday, November 18th, and will take place in the main lobby of the National Music Centre (850 4 St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 1R1). The session starts at 7 PM and is free!
