This year too, the youthful performers of Müpa's jazz exchange are counting on the votes of the audience! On 24 January from 2 pm, you can watch a broadcast of the concerts on the Müpa Budapest website.
Select the most impressive performance from the six groups. The band that receives the most votes will have a unique opportunity to perform in concert during Müpa Budapest's 2021/22 season. So if you would like to see your favourite return to Müpa Budapest, nominate them in the list below, then fill in your details! The voting begins on 24 January at 2 pm, and closes ten minutes after the completion of the final concert.
The winner will be announced on the same day at 8 pm, at the start of the Subtones Fresh Jazz-Funk concert. Thanks to the Müpa Home Live online broadcast, our viewers will be the first to find out the results.
We hope you enjoy each and every performance in the Jazz Showcase!
The first online Jazz Showcase has taken place – here are the favourites of the jury and the audience
The Bettika Quintet received the Professional Prize, based on the votes of the jury, while in an extremely close call the Dávid Varga Quintet won the Audience Prize. Both groups can look forward to the chance to perform during Müpa Budapest's 2021/22 season – hopefully in front of a live audience. You can also encounter the latter band at the 30th Zemplén Festival, as Dávid Varga and his group also received the festival's special award. Thanks to the Hungarian Jazz Association, you will have the chance to hear the Fábió Fehér Trio at the Hungarian Jazz Festival on 14 April, while the Baló Sámuel Trio earned the opportunity to perform at the Budapest Music Center and will also play in Veronika Harcsa's Courtyard at the 30th Valley of the Arts Festival. The Tamás Bolyki Quartet won the Samaria Jazz Special Prize, while the Albert Horváth Quartet have been invited to play at the 606 Club in London.
Thank you for your participation and a warm congratulations to the winners!
