On 28th April, International school Seychelles joined the entire world, for the first time, in celebrating this year’s international Jazz festival. The program featured some special musical and dramatical presentations from our own students and staff. The visiting national music school Brass band wrapped up the program with two great jazz pieces.
International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication. Every year on April 30, this international art form is recognized for fostering gender equality and for promoting individual expression, peace, dialogue among cultures, diversity, respect for human dignity, and the eradication of discrimination.
Mr. John Chitambo would like to thank all the teachers for their support and participation. Special thanks to the National conservatoire of Performing Arts’ band for accepting our invitation on a short notice.
See you next year.
