King Street x Jazz Music Institute Takeover!

On the 30th of April 2021, International Jazz Day celebrated its 10th anniversary as a worldwide cultural event supported by UNESCO.

JMI celebrates International Jazz Day annually by putting on events around Brisbane during April. In 2020, JMI was unable to hold any physical events, however in previous years, JMI has held New Orleans-style street parades in various locations around Brisbane including Queen St Mall, King George Square and King St in Fortitude Valley.

In 2021, the Jazz Music Institute is teaming up with King Street to bring you a jam-packed International Jazz month, filling the Bowen Hills precinct with jazz until Mid-May. There are also plenty of discounts and prizes to be won! 
Head to the King St website to learn more about what’s up for grabs!

Come and along and enjoy the sounds of New Orleans and beyond over the next month.

Here’s how we’re celebrating:

Catch our New Orleans Street Band parade through King Street on the first Thursday of the month between 12-1PM!

JMI Students will be performing jazz in Trios along King St. Here’s where to find them and at what times:

Montrachet (Bastille Day)

Or come down and watch the jazz magic naturally unfold at our King St Student Jam Sessions every Thursday at Welcome To Bowen Hills from 3:30-5:30PM!
