Made in Chicago in Festival in Poland

May 20 - 22, 2016 - 12:00 am - 12:00 am

For over a decade the Jazz Institute has partnered with Estrada Poznanska, a cultural arts organization in Poznan, Poland to showcase Chicago’s jazz community.  This year the festival moves from late fall to early spring in an expanded format that includes a jazz club tour, an evening of concerts at Zamek Castle and free concerts in the Old Market Square.  Continuing another tradition, saxophonist Greg Ward will conduct a workshop with jazz students from universities across Poland with a culminating performance at the festival on Sunday.
