Park of Monserrate


September 2024, on Saturdays


11 am


Free upon purchase of entrance to the park



With the invaluable collaboration of jazz students from the National Conservatory Artistic Music School, Catarina dos Santos offers younger audiences (and others besides) a journey through the history of jazz. In each session, the vast repertoire prepared by these young musicians will take you back in time and demonstrate that jazz is, after all, an accessible and stimulating music, full of interaction and possibilities.


Throughout this month of September, with comments from singer and educator Catarina dos Santos, four groups of students from the jazz course at the National Conservatory will help us understand what Jazz is, using, in each session, repertoire that will be advancing chronologically through the History of Jazz. This means each session will be different, which allows the most passionate audience to attend several concerts with the guarantee that they will always have a different experience. All family concerts include a Jam Session open to any young student who already plays a little jazz and wants to try sharing the stage with the students performing that day.
