We europe will provide nine jazz concerts for free
Written by Hevhetia on May 5, 2021
On May 21, jazz concerts will take place in nine places in Europe as part of the WE EUROPE project. These will be streamed and made available to the public for free!
We Europe is the largest concert project of jazz music on the old continent. Subtitled Jazz at the end of the epidemic, it was initiated by the Polish pianist, composer, organizer and promoter of jazz Krzysztof Kobyliński. He thus created a platform for other jazz promoters, who can thus become visible and prepare a springboard for the expected concert boom after the pandemic subsides. In his idea of the spring revival, Kobyliński draws on the recently published publication “Apollo’s Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live” about the profound and lasting impact of coronavirus on the way we live by Nicholas Christakis, a Yale professor. That is, from the optimistic prediction of a great artistic, economic, technological and political revival. Christakis analyzed previous pandemics and found that after the pandemics subsided, there was an extraordinarily strong progress in almost every direction of life. He cites as one of many examples the 1920s, when the Spanish flu saw the tremendous development of radio broadcasting, jazz music and the women’s rights movement…
So on May 21st you can watch a concert in Gliwice, where Krzysztof Kobyliński (organizer of the Palm Jazz Festival) will perform, followed by the duo Szymon Klima and Dominik Wania. David Kollar and Tomáš Mutina will play in Prešov, which is organized by the Hevhetia publishing house, whose horses are paralyzing in the We Europe project. The Jakub Mizeracki Trio will perform in Brno (Ponava festival), the Sweet Emma Band in Diersbach, Austria, the Lorenzo de Finti Quartet in Milan, the Paul van Kemenade Quintet in Tilburg, the Netherlands, and the Izabella Effenberg in Nuremberg, in Vilnius Leonid Shinkarenko (Nida Jazz Festival) and in Montreal Jacques Seguin Group as part of the Polish-Canadian partnership (Jazz Crossing Festival).
