Cape Town Big Band Jazz Festival at Baxter

The Uni-Sound Jazz Band will be performing on Thursday May 26. The musicians are from Groote Schuur High School and Deutsche Internationale Schule Kapstadt.

The Cape Town Big Band Jazz Festival takes place from Wednesday May 25 to Saturday May 28 at the Baxter Concert Hall, at 7.30pm.

Big bands from junior and high schools, as well as university and community big bands, and an all-star alumni band led by Professor Mike Campbell will take part.

Founded by the late Dennis Barr, the festival should have been celebrating its 25th birthday this year, but had to be postponed in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tickets range from R80 for pupils, students and senior citizens, to R120 for adults. Book at Webtickets or Pick n Pay stores.
