Jazz en Tech: 21 July to 6th August

Love Jazz? Not sure about Jazz? Don’t really know much about it?

Jazz en Tech 2023 – from 21 July to 6th August – is showcasing a wonderful selection of International and French jazz musicians and singers. The programme has been designed to appeal to all. ‘It’s diverse and eclectic’, says Philippe Lenglet, the director. “Jazz, by definition, cannot be defined!”

2023 is the 8th year for Jazz en Tech and the range of artistes this year is truly diverse and exciting. Communities along the Tech and across the border in Sant Joan Les Abadesses are hosting open-air concerts featuring global performers.

Two communities in particular are central to the programme – Saint-Genis-des-Fontaines and, for the second year, Ceret. Three concerts will be held in the 8th century cloisters of the Abbey of Saint-Genis. Ceret will host 3 evening concerts in the Place del Barri, and, on Saturday 4th August, Ceret en Jazz will feature the best of jazz talent from across the department, as well as as ’Constallations’ en Jazz in the Ceret Art Museum
