Description

ANGRAJAZZ – Festival Internacional de Jazz de Angra do Heroísmo – is an event organized by a non-profit association; Associação Cultural Angrajazz, with the support of the Angra do Heroísmo City Hall, the Regional Department of Culture and many private sponsors. The event takes place annually in Angra do Heroísmo; a mid-Atlantic city considered world patrimony by UNESCO, Terceira Island, Azores, Portugal. The first edition of this festival took place in 1999, and the event has taken place each consecutive year in the beginning of October. The festival took place on a XVII century cloister of an old convent until 2003, since then it has moved to the new Centro Cultural e de Congressos de Angra do Heroísmo, an old bullfighting ring transformed into a cultural center. The semi circular auditorium turns into a big jazz club fitting 550 persons. The musicians perform very close to the public which gives it a very exciting and truthful atmosphere.
