The Jazzcat hosting a trip to Prague, Vienna and Berlin with KJazz for the Berlin Jazz Festival!!

by on Mar.15, 2019, under News

October 25th – November 4th 2019

Join fellow public radio jazz enthusiasts for a KJazz adventure to the glorious cultural capitals of central Europe. Your jazz journey begins in romantic Vienna, the capital of Austria. There we will visit Belvedere Palace to view works by Klimt and Monet. Stroll the lively streets, visit the Hofburg Palace and enjoy an evening of jazz and wine tasting. Next, we are off to the city of a hundred spires, Prague! The Czechs fell in love with jazz in the roaring 20s and that affair never ended. In addition to visiting Prague castle, the old town, Charles Bridge and sampling some of the Czech Republic’s finest beers, you’ll also enjoy outings to jazz clubs. The jazz adventure continues on to Berlin, Germany’s bustling and uber hip capital. Throughout the 1920s Berlin was considered the cultural center of Europe. Along with Chicago, Paris and New York, Berlin was one of the great jazz centers in the 1920s and 1930s. Today the city is still packed with ballrooms, jazz clubs and top talent. The BERLIN JAZZFEST will be in full swing while we are there and we’ll have tickets! Space is limited.
