JAZZ in the Park, a popular music series for more than two decades, is running free concerts every week in Stirk Park until April.

Kalamunda Youth Swing Band president Jayne Clark said the concerts featured musicians from primary school age through to their mid-20s.

“These young musos engage the wider community through their passionate performance of jazz, swing, rock ‘n’ roll, funk and soul music,” she said.

“Jazz in the Park and the Kalamunda Youth Swing Band has provided hundreds of young local kids with their first opportunity to perform in public.

“Many of these kids have gone on to successful music careers locally, nationally and internationally.”

Jazz in the Park is held every Thursday night from 6pm to 8pm, in Stirk Park, Kalamunda. The concerts will run until early April, weather permitting.
