For the third year, Dulwich College Beijing (DCB) will host “Diversity,” a month-long festival of music, with a wide range of musicians attending from across the globe. True to its name, the program truly is diverse with performing artists scheduled to attend representing multiple genres from jazz, hip hop, rock bands, and electronic music to composition, symphony orchestra, and soloists. Among the artists will be Roy McGrath Jazz Quartet, Swing Beijing, rock band Mals Totem, a cappella singers The Princeton Tigertones, Cellist Jacob Shaw and DJ Jess Deskovic.
Roy McGrath (and his jazz quartet from Chicago) will kick off the Diversity concert series. The front of the theatre will be transformed into a jazz café with table seats available including red and white wine, juice, and finger food. Regular seats are also available.
