JazzSpeak: What is JAZZ?


Import to Calendar  


Presented by the Fringe Club as one of the programmes of “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, JazzSpeak is the training programme of the Jazz Youth Internship Scheme Phase I.  From March to August 2018, a series of six lectures will be held at the Fringe Club.  Topics include jazz introduction to beginner and its development, promotion of jazz music, arts administration and concert curatorship, and music education.  The talk will be opened to the public as well.

The first three lectures will be hosted by the Chung Brothers, examining jazz from its origins to the present, its relation to other forms of music and different styles within the jazz genre.  Representative and monumental instrumental and vocal recordings from the past one hundred years will also be explored.

Lecture time will be spent listening to, analyzing, and discussing a wide variety of recorded jazz performances and watching jazz videos.  Guest musicians will be invited for demonstration on relevant topics.  This can help to increase participants’ understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of jazz, sharpen their listening skills and the ability to communicate clearly and intelligently about the music.
