Joburg audiences are in for a treat, with UJ Arts & Culture’s inaugural Weekend of Jazz which takes place at their Auckland Park Campus in Johannesburg, 28-30 May 2020. Curated with the young and young-at-heart in mind, the programme nods to the ‘nostalgia’ of the genre and area, while offering new ways to experience the magic of the music.
All performances take place at the UJ Arts Centre on the University of Johannesburg’s Kingsway Campus, Auckland Park. Tickets are R available via https://arts.uj.ac.za/show/jazz20/ or at the door.
