(George Mari)

Alliance Française de Durban in partnership with Café Saint Germain present an Open Day & Jazz Lunch with George Mari Band today (October 3) in its charming garden setting surrounded by shady trees.

The Open Day provides a great opportunity for students, friends and their families to come to Alliance Française de Durban to see the courses and activities that the organisation offers. They will be able to join in activities, attend lectures, learn about courses and events, and view the Alliance Française facilities.

The multi-talented, band leader and trumpeter, George Mari, is a regular to the stage of Alliance Française de Durban. He will lead the band through a selection of favourites from the American jazz songbook, some original compositions and a handful of South African jazz standards. On this occasion, he is accompanied by Gerald Sloan on guitar. The duo offers a wide repertoire of sounds, where jazz sonorities are balanced with world music rhythms!

The Open Day runs from 09h00 to 12h00 with the jazz lunch taking place from 12h00 to 14h00.

Alliance Française de Durban is situated at 22 Sutton Crescent (off Windermere Road) in Morningside. For more information contact 072 176 4422 or email:
