The jazz concerts begin on Thursday, July 24, and run until to Sunday, July 27.

Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

If you can’t make it to the July jazz concerts, there are the Musical Meditations and Music on the move concerts from Tuesday August 19 to Saturday September 6.
