Children’s jazz show
4 Feb at 14:00; Saint John’s Church, Cph N; free admin
Normally in the Copenhagen Jazz Festival there are dozens of concerts specifically aimed at young people, but for Winter Jazz in February we could only find one: Children’s Jazz with Sille og Palle. The duo are main contributors to the DR Ramasjang program ‘Rosa fra Rouladegade’, so they know how to handle a rowdy crowd!
