The Regional Tour – march
Refusing the clichés reserving jazz for an urban elite, the Regional Tour brings this music to the heart of rural life for all kind of audiences. For the same reason, we do not hesitate to invite outstanding figures of contemporary jazz to perform in the most improbable places. In 1988 the very first big tour in Sarthe was born with a little more than 15 concerts of the “Patrick Gleyzes Special Quintet”!
The final – may
Organized at the doors of le Mans, “The Final” always happen at the historical matrix of Europajazz the “Abbaye Royale de l’Epau” in Yvré L’Evêque. Which is considered as a breeding ground for the most unique musical encounters. Thanks to a daring policy of “creations”, Europajazz also knows how to spread new trends, sometimes by inviting emerging groups from all over Europe and beyond and other times the by calling the most imaginative American figures. “Impeccable militant will, proof of the possible through music. A project, Vilar in jazz and jazz stripped of its stereotypes “wrote Francis Marmande in Le Monde’s journal.
In link with economic actors
Europajazz develops lasting and meaningful connection with the business world through the establishment of various partnerships taking many forms: patronage, sponsorship … And every year, various events are organized to bring together the partners around concerts or festivals to allow us to keep up relationships, get to know each other more and increase our respective networks in the best way possible.
