Stop/Porto International Summer School of Jazz 2017

STOP building opened its door in the early 80's. It failed as shopping mall only to gradually give place to the biggest improvised rehearsal hub in Europe. The most recent studies show that this building holds 68 rented rooms that host more than 100 bands and 300 musicians. Stop Summer School of Jazz is now inviting musicians from all over the world to immerse in this unique place while getting to know Porto, probably one of the interesting cities of Europe nowadays.
