The Bridge - Chicago inauguration concert
UPDATE: TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.




Friday, April 26, 2013 will be the Chicago premiere of The Bridge, a jazz network of musicians from Chicago and France to promote transatlantic musical exchange. This inaugural concert will take place at the Chicago Cultural Center, Claudia Cassidy Theatre at 8:00 p.m., preceded by a reception at 6:30 p.m.  

The goal is to help raise funds for a series of collaborative exchanges between jazz musicians from France and Chicago.  This first concert of the series will be performed by a quartet consisting of two saxophones and two drummers, with one player of each instrument from Paris and the other from Chicago: St├ęphane Payen and Fred Jackson on saxophone, and Edward Perraud and Frank Rosaly on drums.


The Bridge is privileged to include a transatlantic network of 60 of the most creative jazz musicians, half from the Midwest and half from France. Through an innovative and focused exchange, the Bridge will facilitate a cross-cultural exploration of jazz and improvised music, and highlight the diversity of the musicians in the network.  Four times a year, The Bridge will enable two or three musicians to cross the Atlantic for two weeks  twice from Chicago to France, twice from France to Chicago  to perform in a mixed ensemble that will provide the nucleus for future collaborations, and include the other musicians of the network in events such as public performances, informal playing sessions and master classes.  

This concert follows the Paris inauguration concert at the Sons d'hiver festival on February 23rd, 2013.
It featured the band Tortoise with 6 guests from the network: American musicians Nicole Mitchell, Jim Baker, and JT Bates; and French musicians Aymeric Avice, Antonin-Tri Hoang, and Julien Desprez.
The concert was recorded by French public TV, and the whole footage is available at:

The event is  made possible thanks to the support of the Paris Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International, and the Cultural Services of French Embassy.
