Made for kids - Jazz for kids and families
Forfatter: Aarhus Jazz Festival
As usual, children and accompanying adults have also been considered in this year’s program for Aarhus Jazz Festival.
Join us at Helsingør Theater (Den Gamle By) for a musical expedition – Jorden rundt med Malene Kjærgaard. Good luck sitting still when this award-winning quintet sets up and fills the room with all kinds of notes from all over the world (8/7 10:30 am).
At Verdenspladsen in Gellerup, Kongklave feat. Lene Nørgård & Eliza Boye will lead you through drum rhythms from all over the world with their contagious enthusiasm for playing, singing, and dancing (10/7 3:00 pm).
Four days with children’s jazz in Musikhusparken kick off with Baryl. They are said to be a blast, playing with music, ending up in a secret place – and you are welcome to join in (12/7 1:00 pm). On the following day you can meet the dynamic Kongklave again (13/7 1:00 pm), Flensborg/Venndt Duo offer cozy musical fun with lots of instruments (14/7 1:00 pm), and Moussa Diallo Trio invites children and adults into an enchanting universe of fairy tales and African drum rhythms (15/7 1:00 pm).
This week’s two LilleJazz concerts at Dokk1 will offer something special in the form of experimental jazz for children and their adults, adults and their children – and adults without children. Challenge yourself in the company of the cello duo Soma Allpass/Niels Bo Davidsen (9/7 2:00 pm) and Jacinta Madsen & Maria Faust Jazz Catastrophe 3rd Mutation (12/7 3:00).
Children’s jazz is an affordable event. At Verdenspladsen and Musikhusparken it is free, while the tickets at Helsingør Theater cost DKK 50. At the concerts at Dokk1, admission is free for children, while adults pay DKK 80, with a discount of DKK 20 for each accompanying child.
