COMPETIȚIA THE JAZZ IN THE PARK

Ultima ediție

The fifth edition of the International Jazz in the Park Competition took place in Cluj-Napoca, in Iulius Park and SubForm, between May 4 and 5, 2019.

We were pleased to meet talented young people, extremely passionate about music, bands who already have a strong and noticeable personality on the young jazz scene. 

We had two crazy and amazing days, and it’s totally been a blast!
