Celebrate jazz at the European Parliament

Once again the sound of the rhythm and the soul returns to the European Parliament for the Brussels Jazz Weekend. Freedom of speech and cultural diversity are at the heart of jazz and the European Parliament is proud to support the Place du Luxembourg stage, one of the five venues for the weekend’s celebrations.

In between enjoying world-class jazz, take a look inside Station Europe on Place du Luxembourg and discover the different activities for visitors at the European Parliament.

Jazz Europe Express - A journey through the sound of European jazz!
Saturday 25 May from 14.00 to 15.30, House of European History

You are invited on a journey through the sound of European jazz. A Embark on a guided listening session that tells the story of European jazz after World War II through rare and historical vinyl records. The history of European jazz is filled with beautiful, yet often overlooked music that deserves to be (re)discovered. After a brief overview of the prehistory of jazz in Europe, the lecture will alternate between a talk and the guided listening of audio extracts. Each record played comes with a story that illustrates one of the various themes discussed during the session.
