Celebrating its 28th year, April Jazz brings the world’s top jazz artists to the Finnish city of Espoo from April 22 to 27. This year, acts such as Snarky Puppy, Angélique Kidjo, Tiempo Habana, and The Kenny Garrett Quintet are supported by more than 100 Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems at all three principal venues located in and around the Espoo Cultural Center.

2014 marks the April Jazz debut of Meyer Sound’s new MJF-210 stage monitors, ten of which were recently purchased by the Espoo Cultural Center, and will remain in its permanent inventory. Sound reinforcement support and equipment supply come from Espoo-based Studiotec, with logistical coordination by Antti Murto.
