Conad Jazz Contest 2019, the first numbers!
An all-Italian edition in 2019, with 30 bands entered to date, for a total of 92 artists with average age of 24, 90 tracks uploaded and 4088 listens. These are the partial numbers of the eighth season of Conad Jazz Contest, with registration open until 15th May (the regulations are available on this site on the Concorso page).
As always, numerous prizes will be awarded, all with the aim to support young talents: “It’s important not only to win the prizes but also to have the opportunity to really become musicians and become part of the large Italian jazz community,” remarked Paolo Fresu, president of the Artistic Jury, interviewed on the radio programme “Viva L’Italia” on RTL 102.5.
Marco Molendini, journalist and music critic, also a member of the Jury, added: “The economic contribution will certainly give artists the possibility to produce their own CD, but the prizes also include the chance to perform on prestigious stages. Not just an experience, but an important opportunity to get noticed and applauded.”
If you are a young musician between 18 and 28, put your talent to the test, the Umbria Jazz stage awaits you!
