…It’s like a jazz “house party” without the clean up.
Not just for “jazz lovers”. Our Colorado music programs present pop, blues, Latin, funk, swing and other styles interpreted in modern jazz grooves with the added magic of jazz improvisation.
At The Jazz Soirée (swah ray) the focus is on the music.We bring in some of Colorado’s finest jazz musicians. Yes, you will enjoy the warmth socializing with friends old and new, but music here is not just background. In these concerts, you will be able to hear and engage with every nuance of the jazz performance. Our members and guests like it that way. We choose a venue that is smaller, attractive and intimate, like an art gallery, and one that has good acoustics. In that setting music, musicians and audience interact in an extraordinary experience.
