From small to big band, from Schaerbeek to Saint-Josse
In partnership with the Jazz Station, we've come up with a formula called "From small to big band, from Schaerbeek to Saint-Josse".
Every first Thursday of the month, from October to June, from 8.30pm to 10.30pm, the Jazz Station Big Band (14 musicians) performs at the Jazz Station (chaussée de Louvain 193, near Place Saint-Josse).
From 7pm to 7.45pm, the Maison Autrique will be hosting a pre-concert featuring a solo performance by one of the Big Band musicians. He or she will take this opportunity to introduce you to his or her instrument(s), their specificities and/or their unsuspected uses in a unique performance. Drinks and sandwiches available from 6.45pm. Separate or combined tickets on sale at the following link.
