Midweek Musical Matinee: Gypsy Jazz

Wednesday, December 13

1 :00-2:00pm

In-Person at the Osher Marin JCC, 2 00 N. San Pedro Road (San Rafael, CA)

“Gypsy Jazz” is a style of small-group jazz which originated in France in the 1930s. Romani guitarist Jean “Django” Reinhardt (“the most important figure in the genre”) and French swing violinist Stéphane Grappelli (also known at “the grandfather of jazz violinists”) are its founding fathers. This hopping style of music is also called “Hot Club Jazz,” “Romani Swing,” and “Manouche jazz.”

Celebrate the winter holiday season by joining us for a concert of the joyful, upbeat sounds of the Gypsy Jazz quartet Le Hot Club Swing followed by a coffee & cookies reception to connect with other music lovers.

Thanks to Donors to our Adult Learning Programs, FREE “Early Bird tickets” are available for this concert.

Of course, buying a “Donation ticket” (and making a donation of any amount) will help us offer more low-cost and free programming.

Music Lovers Unite: Coffee & Chat

Join us after the concert for a complimentary coffee & cookies reception to connect with other music lovers.
