A MUST-ATTEND EVENT FOR JAZZ AND IMPROVISED MUSIC
The Rentrée Grands Formats is the federation’s annual gathering, a must-attend meeting for professionals of the jazz and improvised music industry and all music lovers. Come discover the extraordinary vividness of big band music !
Each year in autumn, the federation joins forces with a venue or festival to organize a launching event comprising several big band concerts, a professional conference and cultural or educational activities.
For a month, the Rentree will then feature more than fifty concerts throughout France and Europe. Look around, there is necessarily a big band concert near you !
