L'Aubette Live

Mark Kavuma playing live

Experience early twentieth century jazz in the Gallery with Mark Kavuma on trumpet and Naoh Stoneman on piano.

The great American Songbook - the irresistible jazz classics that spread from the US across the nightclubs of Europe in the early twentieth century - is reinterpreted by Mark Kavuma on trumpet and Noah Stoneman on piano. 

Every Thu–Sat evening throughout Into the Night, the galleries will come to life with performance in the exhibition’s recreation of Strasbourg’s iconic L’Aubette (1928), focusing on the vitality and diversity of jazz as performed across the globe. The evenings are co-curated with Mark Kavuma, a prominent young trumpet player on the British jazz scene.

The performance starts at 7pm and is free with an Into the Night exhibition ticket. 

Please note that the performance finishes at approximately 8pm and the gallery closes at 9pm.
