    be included in this year’s Standard Bank Joy of Jazz programme. The sponsor has

    introduced the show in its educational programme for the Joy of Jazz to

    encourage appreciation of the genre amongst younger fans, as well as broadening

    the appeal of the event. Aimed at high schools, Crazy For Jazz: Our Journey

    Through Music runs in Newtown from Monday to Friday, August 24 to 28 with two

    shows daily as part of the build-up towards the Joy of Jazz. There is no charge

    for entrance but bookings from schools are essential.

High schools that would like to attend Crazy for Jazz should contact Themba
