THE SPECTACULAR #US4US CONCERT
JOURNEY TO JAZZ AND KRONKELDRAAIE KONSERTE
PACT launched their inaugural Journey to Jazz festival in September 2022. This fees is an annual event in the heart of the Karoo taking place in May – offering a feast of music, art, and storytelling all while illuminating a future of possibility for young people in the small desert town.
The programme has already attracted big names in the jazz world and provides young people an opportunity to tap into apprenticeships, master classes, to perform to large audiences and gain exposure to the global stage.
The festival invites the audience to embark on an exploration of music and storytelling made richer by the diversity of the Karoo, its people and their combined creative spirit.
The youth Journey to Jazz producers host small acoustic Kronkeldraaie Konserte during the months running up to the festival in intimate venues around Prince Albert. These gigs introduce various genres of music, inspire conversation and collaborations and feed in to the Journey to Jazz Kuif or Fringe festival.
