Jazz is the music of joy and liberty. The essence of jazz is the free improvisation. We can witness how "real" jazz will be born. The extraordinary musicians which are invited for the Festival will jam together. We are waiting for applications from guest-musicians, so the Sunday evening concert will become Oradea’s genuine jam session!
On Pentecost Sunday also the Jazz will talk about spirit. Participants and visitors can experience how city-noise, rush and stress will turn into joy and reassurance as well as the spirit will raise in the garden-district of the city. Real jazz aglows life, light, purity.
Everyone is welcome!
