In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe…

International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication.

Whanganui will join with thousands of cities around the world to celebrate the occasion. Rodger Fox of the New Zealand School of Music will lead a workshop 'What is Jazz' in the afternoon.

The evening concert features Rodger and his NZSM Big Band and guests Erna Ferry and Michel Benebig. Michel, hailing from New Caledonia, performs his Soul Jazz music all over the world on the Hammond Organ. His collaboration with Rodger goes back many years, and is a great example of how jazz crosses borders.

The concert embraces the ideal of promoting intercultural dialogue, with special guests AWA performing a musical welcome incorporating taonga puoro, and jazz influenced Daniel Waho with his band Reset.
