B-Jazz 2019 is more than the finals only…


As you already know we celebrate the 40th edition of our international contest and this means that there’ll be more than the finals only. Of course, these two nights (22 & 23 March) still are the ‘core’ of B-Jazz, but here’s what’s else:

  • on friday 15 March students will perform ‘LUCA | School of Arts plays 40 Years of B-Jazz‘ at La Conserve: new interpretations of comositions that were written for B-Jazz the past 40 years…
  • from wednesday 20 till saturday 23 March you can visit the exhibition ‘It was 40 Years ago Today: B-Jazz Hoeilaart International Contest since 1979‘ at OPEK: music, pictures, ceramic, record sleeves and more, all related to this 40 years’ history…
  • on friday 22nd and saturday 23rd March, after the bands played their concert we all move downstairs to Café Entrepot for the Late Night Jams: with students from LUCA | School of Arts and the finalists of B-Jazz everyone will jam together…
  • on the final day, sunday 24 March, we start of at 30CC/Schouwburg with a concert by Milkshake Banana 2.0 (the winners of the first edition of Jazz Hoeliaart, way back in 1979!), after which the prizes are handed out (Jazz&mo’ Award, Composition Prize and ‘Grand Prize Albert Michiels‘) and the winners of B-Jazz 2019 play a mini-concert…

Most of the above events have limited capacity, so make sure to reserve your ticket(s) in time!
See you at B-Jazz! See you at Leuven Jazz!
