**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.
Acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Kevin Field is joined by one of New Zealand’s greatest expatriate vocalists Bex Peterson.
Originally from Auckland, Bex made her name in the jazz scene before branching out in soul and R & B. Under the stage name Sassy, she is a household name in her current home Fiji.
We are excited to bring these two long time collaborators together for a very special one-off concert featuring originals, standards and jazzy interpretations of iconic kiwi pop tunes.
