Vladivostok is preparing for an international jazz festival

11 November 2014 will open the International Jazz Festival in Vladivostok for the 11 time. The event will be attended by musicians from the United States, Cameroon, South Korea, France, Novosibirsk and St. Petersburg. Concerts will take place from 11 to November 17. The festival is organized by the Primorye Regional Philharmonic with the support of the Primorye Administration and the Territory’s Culture Department.

This festival is a significant cultural event of the Far Eastern region. Every year, students and organizers discover new names for jazz musicians from around the world.

- We are glad that during this time the festival became one of the biggest events of the Far East. Jazz is music that was born in America, but enjoyed by people all over the world. Experience shows that such cooperation yields surprising results, "says Erik Pagner, consul on the press, culture and education of the US Consulate General in Vladivostok.

This year, students will be able to meet with foreign performers, such as Eric Legnini Trio (France), Oleg Butman's Trio (Russia-USA), Stenley Jordan (USA), Charlie Jung Band (South Korea), Kenny Washington (USA), and Russians: Alexei Cheremizov’s quartet (St. Petersburg), Alegria quartet (Khabarovsk), Pavel Sharov’s vocal ensemble (Novosibirsk), Indigo group (Vladivostok), Z-Studio ensemble (Vladivostok). Also for the first time at the closing of the festival, which will be held on November 17, the Quartet of Jesse Davis from the United States will perform for the first time on stage. He is represented by two performers from America - Jesse Davis and Rick Hollander, Martin Zenker from Germany and soloist of the Primorsky Regional Philharmonic Society Andrei Vinichenko.
