The festival will revitalize Bucharest musical scene during May 7 – 13, will feature musicians from 40 countries.
Just like during the previous editions, the opening concert of May 7 will celebrate Europe Day and will result in an outstanding show, consisting of an original mix of jazz, blues, pop and classical music and thus previewing the agenda of the events included in the festival, Agerpres informs. For the following days, under the slogan “The Festival Offers to You! You Choose!,” the organizer jmEvents.ro announces a series of jazz, rock and pop concerts, performed by famous European artists, in traditional or non-conventional concert locations which will represent some of the festival’s top attractions. The third edition of Bucharest International Jazz Competition, an event that has no comparison in the field of Romanian professional jazz – as it had a successful starting edition two years ago, and was attended at that time by 19 bands from several European countries – announces the same jazz atmosphere and more.
The third competition included in the agenda of EUROPAfest is Jeunesses International Music Competition, well known not only in Romania, but also worldwide. In 2009, the competition will include the violin section. In addition to the competition, jam sessions and workshops will also be organized under the guidance of international specialists. A special place in the program of the event is granted to the Café Festival, dedicated to music lovers longing to rediscover the pleasure of listening to music in a non-conventional location, the Peasant’s Club at the Romanian Peasant’s Museum.
EUROPAfest 2009 will be closed on May 13 by the Award Winners Show, which will star the best artists of the festival, granting the audience an opportunity to enjoy performances by the winners of the competitions.
