Cool Program of the Week – Jazz in Paris


Cool Program of the Week loves all the stories coming in from summer’s abroad.  Summer is such a good time to study and do cool things – like Jazz in Paris:

What is this program about?

We spend the summer following in their footsteps to understand how Jazz developed and why it was so enthusiastically received by the Parisians in the 1920s. In addition to historical lectures, films, and live music in class, we will capture the flavor of the period with excursions to the nightclubs, restaurants, concert venues, and cafes owned and frequented by these African American pioneers abroad.

The ability to speak French or read music is not necessary—a passion to learn about American jazz in Paris is required!
