Jazz be Free

Jazz is on

Being the only Jazz Festival named after a city, the 2020 Guangzhou Jazz Festival has become a new business card for the city’s culture.

Shen Yang, world-renowned Chinese bass-baritone singer, together with Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, will present the classical American jazz in the Golden time, while Maria Wang, a popular local jazz singer and songwriter, with her friends will join hands with the Golden Jazz Big Band from Zhuhai to give you a different musical experience of modern jazz.

Shen Yang 

First held in 2015, the 6th Guangzhou Jazz Festival is a real cultural event for Jazz lovers with the biggest lineup and the top domestic Jazz musicians gathered together. Unlike before, this year’s festival is to be organized both online and offline to engage more jazz fans to interact with the musical groups in Guangzhou.

Online jazz classes will be taught by some local musicians in a very simple and interesting way. It will take only five minutes for audiences to learn how to play a little bit of jazz.
