Amsterdam World Jazz City 2014 kicks off its yearlong programme with a very special concert at Melkweg!
Amsterdam World Jazz City 2014
Amsterdam World Jazz City is an initiative that seeks to honour the rich tradition that Amsterdam has in the field of jazz and improvised music.
Throughout 2014, Amsterdam will affirm its reputation as a breeding ground for young jazz talent by presenting performances, concerts and workshops to showcase a variety of jazz styles.
Taking place in diverse locations, the goal of the theme is to emphasise the value of established stages and musicians while simultaneously providing a platform to expand on these offerings.
Jazz on the canals, jazz in the living room, jazz in the streets, theatres and bookstores. In 2014, wherever you go, jazz will be the flow!
