Tauranga Jazz Society President:

Graeme Purches

The Tauranga Jazz Society welcomes you to another great festival celebrating jazz in all its forms, and a few musical bonuses as well.

Jazz is alive and well in Tauranga, and poised to enter a new growth phase driven by young performers, new talent, and more planned events.

The Tauranga Jazz Society has a long history of supporting jazz education in our community, and we are extremely proud to be hosting the 41st National Youth Jazz Competition at the 2018 festival.

We are sure everybody will appreciate and enjoy seeing and hearing inspiring secondary school students, the future of Jazz in our community and in New Zealand, perform.

This amazing festival couldn't continue to grow without the support and assistance of our sponsors and the local community – on behalf of the Jazz community, and musicians far and wide, thank you to everyone involved.

So, tune up your listening ears, put on your dancing shoes, and enjoy.

Happy Jazzing everyone.
