Sunday, July 7, the last day of Jazz in the Park, marked an honorable end of the seventh edition of the festival. Although at noon a few drops of rain appeared, the weather quickly tamed and we could enjoy one last day of jazz.
As it happened throughout the festival, Central Park has become overcrowded in the evening. The Vintage Fair was stormed by those who wanted to seize the last chance to buy those things that they’ve had their eyes on since the beginning. The performance of Mister Nicu gathered more children around than any other day, and the zipline over the lake had an elongated queue. The Music Bazaar has not been forgotten either. Even more, there has been a spontaneous jam session, which lasted almost as much as a concert and gathered a lot of people.
Regarding the concerts, Sunday was simply amazing, just like the last three days have been. With the great Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio and the incredible Judith Hill, the seventh edition of Jazz in the Park ended downright perfect.
We must not overlook the other stages where participants gathered before the evening to relax by talking and listening to good music. The Alternative Stage hosted the MING concert, followed by the winners of the International Jazz in the Park Competition, the Polish band Fraktale. The last concert, very well received by the public, was held by Alaska Snack Time.
Once the concerts in the park ended, the public turned to Colin’s Gastro Pub, where the last jam session of Jazz in the Park for this year took place and where they could listen again to the sensational Judith Hill.
For four days, we had sun, good music, relaxation, time for friends and new experiences. This year’s edition of Jazz in the Park undoubtedly remains an unforgettable memory for both the organizers and the participants. See you next year!
