'Jazzy Jeudi' concert series 2017

Throughout the year, Jazzy Jeudi (meaning 'Jazzy Thursday' in French) will feature various jazz performers once a month on a Thursday evening, often incorporating a component of French language or a repertoire of French music. The performances will be held in the intimate concert space in the basement of the Alliance Française.

Jazzy Jeudi is a follow on from the successful St Kilda Summer Jazz 2016 event, which presented a series of concerts over one weekend with artists performing at a range of venues in St Kilda.
