Why this 3rd International Jazz Day in Montreal during the 375 Montréal anniversary?
Because, as said by author John Gilmore: « For almost half a century, more jazz was made in Montreal than anywhere else in Canada. ».
Because in the words of Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO: «In times of change and uncertainty, we need the spirit of jazz more than ever before, to bring people - especially young women and men - together, to nurture freedom and dialogue, to create new bridges of respect and understanding, for greater tolerance and cooperation." This resonates Miles Davis' assertion that "music isn't about competition, but about cooperation, doing shit together and fitting in.» - United Nations
We invite the public to join us in celebrating this global event. Please remember to use the hashtags #jazzday #jazzdaymtl and #375MTL in your social networks when commenting on this event!
