All that jazz

Strains of jazz brought sunshine to hospital patients, visitors, staff and volunteers even through this summer’s occasional downpour, as the JGH celebrated its 15th annual Jazz Fest.

JGH Music Therapist and Jazz Fest founder and impresario Bryan Highbloom organized this year’s event in collaboration with local music festival organizers Suoni per il popolo. From June 9 to 19, lunchtime at the hospital was enhanced by international music flavours, as musicians played music representing different cultures from around the globe. Audiences were kept entertained by a variety of styles—jazz, of course, but also R&B, pop, rock and folk—that were united under the banner of the festival’s theme, Music is Healing.

JGH Jazz was presented with the support of the JGH Auxiliary, as well as sponsors audio company Sennheiser and Steve’s Music Store.
