April in Paris
With KJAZZ 88.1

A Floating Jazz Fest to Normandy

Exclusive River Journey * Jazz Performances* D-Day Beaches * Gardens * Giverny

April 14 - 24, 2020

We are embarking on another exceptional musical adventure; this time to Paris and Normandy and we’d love for you to join us!

We’ve chartered the MS Amadeus Diamond just for all of us jazz-loving public radio supporters. We’ll hear a little gypsy jazz, Django Reinhardt style, throw one of our famous Latin jazz dance parties and have several onboard concerts performed by outstanding European musicians.

The trip begins in Paris, and we sail directly up the Seine to experience highlights such as Claude Monet’s Giverny Gardens, the spectacular Mont St Michel, the D-Day Beaches of WWII and delightful Norman villages and historic towns. We’ll also savor the local culinary specialties the French are so famous for: creamy cheeses, crisp cider and other local delights. And for the grand finale, we end in Paris! Once home to a plethora of American jazz performers, writers, artists and musicians, it’s the perfect place to witness the on-going love affair between Paris and jazz.

A good time is guaranteed – we hope you’ll join our floating jazz festival from Paris to Normandy!
