Jazz au Vert - jazz workshop in Wépion Belgium

Les Lundis d'Hortense asbl is an association of jazz musicians. Its main purpose is to promote the Belgian jazz scene and its musicians. It has now been nearly 40 years since Les Lundis d'Hortense have spared no effort in achieving its objective.

Les Lundis d'Hortense organizes numerous concerts and every year, in July a jazz course.

The yearly summer course "Jazz au Vert" is a must for advanced musicians or beginners who desire to broaden their musical knowledge of jazz music. The spirit that drives this residential summer course is unique. The students are plunged into the world of jazz and are musically stimulated and enriched on a long term basis.

Every year, the presence of almost 140 students confirms the need and the interest for jazz education. The summer course takes place in the verdant surroundings of the cultural center Marcel Hicter-La Marlagne in Wépion close to Namur. In 2015, this will be the 31st "Jazz au Vert".

The course proposes many activities: instrument lessons, collective group playing lessons and harmony lessons as well as masterclasses and African, Brazilian, vocal and rhythm workshops. The most advanced students take part in a Big Band and every night, jam sessions take place in a bar turned into a jazz club for the occasion. The summer course ends with a concert from all students in La Marlagne's concert hall.
