Jazz Concerts at the IEN are back

After the suspension of the concerts in March 2020 due to the pandemic related restrictions, this Thursday, March,18 at 7.30 pm in the ICCIC auditorium in Barcelona, the jazz concerts are back with Gili-Romani Hot Jazz Cats.

Jazz related activities at the North American Studies Institute are a long-standing tradition. The first ones documented were Jam Sessions during the 1959-60 course year, “The psychology of Jazz” speech by Adrian Sunshine in 1961, and in 1965 “The New Jazz Quartet” concert. Since then, several groups, musicians and experts have come to the IEN to play or talk about jazz music. Furthermore, the library holds a collection of books on Jazz as well as imported jazz records which could be listened to in audio sessions.

Later on, in what could be considered the second stage of the IEN’s connection to jazz music, a strong relationship was established as the Jubilee Jazz Club began to offer monthly jazz concerts. To this day, these concerts continue to attract the attention of both musicians and the general public.
