UN International Jazz Day
International Schools Association
It is with great pleasure that Agora Madrid International School hosts this year’s UN International Jazz Day. The event will be held entirely online and participating schools will see that there is a wide range of opportunities in both English and Spanish for students aged 9 and upwards.
Jazz as an art form holds special significance in the calendar of events organized by the United Nations and ISA proudly recognises this, The goal of this event is to explore Music, History, Sociology and to unite students across borders through the language of Music.
- Students will engage in up to four different online workshops with well known names from the world of Jazz, as well as performance opportunities.
- The workshops will focus on particular techniques used in Jazz music and the history of jazz as a unique art form.
Following a brief opening ceremony on the day itself, participants will be invited to enter one of four digital platforms or “rooms” hosted by a wide range of well known names in the world of Music and Jazz in particular :
The age range for this workshop is from 15 upwards, it will be held in English. Anyone who does not have a command of the guitar will be more than welcome as an audience member.
This will be the final event where absolutely anyone (with prior notice of intention to participate) can perform a jazz piece through song and/or instrumental offering so that we can celebrate the wonder of a real Jazz Session, the universal language of Music. As such all languages will be welcome.
The precise timetable of these events will be finalised according to the level of participation and geographical location of each school. For this reason the closing date for expressing your interest in taking part will be Wednesday 27th April by 5pm CET.
