Ready to Join?

Dear members of the Ferney Voltaire and Surroundings Group, dear jazz lovers,

We are happy to see that our History of Jazz Piano activity at Château de Voltaire has received quite a large number of sign-ups for such a small group. Since there seems to be an interest in such activities, we would like to propose another jazz activity at the same location: This time it will be a tribute concert for the great Louis Armstrong!

Alongside musicians with whom he has already performed several shows, Jean Chollet will recount the beginnings of this genius artist.

Music: Louis Armstrong
Story: Jean Chollet
Musicians: Beat Clerc, trumpet; Léo Muller, clarinet, saxophone; Jean-François Gertsch banjo, guitar; René Lambelet, tuba, bass; Raymond Graisier, washboard, metallophone

We will meet at 20:00 outside the venue so that we can enter and look for seats together.
