*OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE NATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL TAURANGA*
The Tauranga Jazz Society has made the difficult decision to cancel the National Jazz Festival.
Tauranga Jazz Society’s top priority is the health and safety of artists, staff, volunteers, sponsors, venues, audience, and community. Following the recommendation of the New Zealand government and public health officials, the 58th National Jazz Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.
Festival organisers understand the impact this news may bring. With regard to the 43rd National Youth Jazz Competition to be held 8 to 9 April, Festival organisers are considering alternative dates and will release further information on this once they have consulted fully.
Young jazz stars of the future compete for trophies and glory!
The National Youth Jazz Competition showcases the very best emerging jazz players from secondary schools across New Zealand.
Everyone is in for a special treat as they listen to these musically talented Combos and Big Bands strut their stuff for trophies, prizes and awards.
Make sure you get along and support our jazz stars of the future.
