UNESCO, in partnership with the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz, has orchestrated a series of performances, educational workshops/master classes, community service outreach, panel discussions and radio and television broadcasts during the day on April 30. Taking place in all 50 U.S. states and more than 190 countries, all of the events will follow recommended public health guidelines.
“UNESCO created International Jazz Day to share the values of a deeply meaningful musical genre,” commented UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay. “Today we need jazz more than ever. We need its values, based on human dignity and the fight against racism and all forms of oppression. It is so much more than music. Jazz is the kind of bridge builder we need in the world today.”
Launched in 2011 by UNESCO, International Jazz Day is held every year on April 30 in a different locale around the world. Cape Town, South Africa was the planned host city in 2020 until the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to shift to a virtual celebration for the first time in the event’s history.
Toyota is the 2021 lead partner for International Jazz Day; transportation partner is United Airlines. A complete list of events, including the free virtual educational programs, can be found at www.jazzday.com or www.unesco.org/jazzday.
