This year in November, Wroclaw is hosting the 10th Anniversary Edition of the Jazztopad Festival.
The program of the festival includes 12 concerts of jazz stars such as Wayne Shorter, William Parker, Charles Lloyd, Joachim Kühn, Tony Malaby. During the 10th anniversary edition there will be also meetings with great artists (always at 6 p.m., one hour before the concert), screenings of documentaries on jazzmen that will come to Wroclaw, Jazz Showcase (presentation of Polish artists to a group of foreign journalists from influential magazines) and even concerts in flats. Film screenings will be preceded by live concerts of musicians, which will remain secret until the end - in the dark movie theater, no one will know who's playing! An interesting part will be also concerts of artists from Korea, Australia and Japan, including Michiyo Yagi Trio Deluxe - a group whose leader is Michiyo, virtuoso of koto - a traditional Japanese musical instrument.
During this year's festival the project 'Melting Pot Made in Wroclaw' will be inaugurated. This is a laboratory jazz improvisation prepared for Wroclaw as European Capital of Culture in 2016.
Jazztopad’s anniversary edition will open on Thursday, November 14 with the revered Wayne Shorter Quartet. Tickets for concerts cost from 20 to 250 PLN.
