All that jazz
30.10.2019 | Corporate philanthropy
Hosted by the Théâtre Gérard Philippe in Saint-Denis, the Saint-Denis Jazz Club is a non-profit created to offer residents of Saint-Denis and neighbouring towns a truly high-quality jazz season at low prices. Created on the initiative of Emmanuel Bex, an artist supported by the BNP Paribas Foundation, and Sophie Bex, the club is celebrating its 10th anniversary this season.
The Saint-Denis Jazz Club gives artists an opportunity to perform in unprecedented formats, with an emphasis on collective creation, bringing together the finest French and European musicians. It also introduces emerging artists through “coups de cœur jeunes talents” [top young talents] events. A true meeting place between the public and artists and a place of social cohesion, the club offers local amateur artists a chance to present their projects during opening acts. Through these monthly concerts, the Saint-Denis Jazz Club is committed to ethics, openness, generosity and respect for artists and audiences. This action in favour of culture fits in with our commitment in the Seine-Saint-Denis department.

For this anniversary season, the Saint-Denis Jazz Club is offering an outstanding programme where artists are always delighted to play before a local, loyal and friendly audience. Prabhu Edouard, Marion Gomar and Benjamin Laurent, Elise Caron and Bruno Chevillon and the Théo Ceccaldi Trio will be on the programme.
Strengthened by its commitment to contemporary jazz creation, the Foundation has been supporting the Saint-Denis Jazz Club since 2010.
