Concerts are back! As soon as it opens its doors once again, Müpa Budapest is serving up a new festival for jazz lovers. After 15 successful years, the New Orleans Swing Festival will now be known as JazzTime, as it continues its commitment to the traditional values of jazz, but with a wider selection of styles. The audience can look forward to delights for both the eyes and ears, with an uplifting performance featuring a host of big band classics and the ladies taking centre stage.
The BJC Big Band, the home band of the Budapest Jazz Club, was formed from some of the finest musicians of the Hungarian jazz scene. In 2019, they starred behind the multi-instrumentalist, singer, tap dancer and one-man band Gunhild Carling at the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall.
