Taipei, July 29 (CNA) The 2015 Summer Jazz Outdoor Party will be jazzing it up from Sept. 18-20 in the main plaza of the National Theater and Concert Hall (NTCH) in Taipei, the organizer said Wednesday. The outdoor party, now in its 7th year, was expanded to three days from the previous two in order to give jazz aficionados an extra day to groove to the music.
For the party, the NTCH has invited Sinne Eeg, a Danish jazz vocalist and composer who is a three-time winner of the Best Danish Vocal Jazz Album of the Year at the Danish Music Awards. It will be her first performance in Taiwan.
On the opening day, Sinne Eeg will be joined by Timeless Fusion Party, which has previously earned Best Instrumental Album and Best Instrumental Album Producer at the Taiwan Golden Melody Awards, in displaying their musical talent and style.
On Sept. 19, the NTCH has invited Semiscon Vocal Band and Friends, one of the best-known a cappella groups in Taiwan, to share their music with the audience. Vincent Hsu, a Taiwanese jazz singer, will lead the “Journey Through Jazz” Sextet. On the last day, the NTCH Jazz Camp Orchestra and Sinne Eeg will stage a grand finale. The Summer Outdoor Party will kicked off at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 18. Admission is free. (By Sabine Cheng and Lauren Hung)
