Samtal om Jazz

På fredag och lördag genomförs två publika seminarier i Peterson-Bergersalen på Umeå Folkets Hus. Under rubriken Samtal om Jazz inbjuds media, professionella aktörer men också allmänheten till samtal om trender och tendenser inom ramen för dagens nationella och internationella jazzscen. Medverkar gör våra gästande konstnärliga ledare, journalister, musiker, komponister,  m fl. Det språk vi använder under samtalen är engelska.
 
Genom ett internationell samverkansprojekt mellan Konstnärsnämnden och  Norrlandsoperan AB, har två internationella komponister; Susana Santos (PRT) och Samuel Blaser (CHE), inbjudits att delta i samtalen för att förstärka komponistens röst.
