We are thrilled to announce that we are launching our “Become a patron of our Jazz Festival” campaign to raise funds for our “Jazz District” festival which will take place in Maintenon from July 20th to 22nd 2018, with world-class artists such as Joshua Redman and Cécile McLorin Salvant.

Jazz District is a jazz festival that will take place from July 20th to 22nd 2018 in Castel Maintenon, a 4-star hotel located in the town of Maintenon (15 km from Chartres), with 3 nights of concerts and 3 bands per night. We are very lucky to be welcoming such renowned artists as Joshua Redman, Billy Hart and Cecile McLorin Salvant. An exhibit of rare Louis Armstrong photos as well as a conference on Satchmo will be organised thanks to our partnership with the New-York label Dot Time Records and the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Portraits of women in jazz from the Women Of Note exhibition will also be on display thanks to our partnership with the New Orleans Jazz Museum and the Louisiana Museum Foundation. This is as part of the tricentennial celebrations of the foundation of the city of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz.

This festival will also pay homage to Didier Lockwood who honoured us by becoming a patron of our radio, and whose school, the Centre des Musiques Didier Lockwood (CMDL) which he created 18 years ago, we have a partnership with. Several of its students will be performing at our festival, as well as André Charlier and Benoît Sourisse, co-founders of the CMDL, in a trio with Louis Winsberg.

For the festival to take place in the best possible conditions, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign on Commeon to gather the total sum of 25.000 euros with a first threshold at 10.000 euros and a second at 20.000 euros.
