New Orleans Swing Festival, Mupa, 22-26 August
August means swing! The Müpa end-of-summer festival once again awaits lovers of the genre with excellent musicians and unforgettable concerts, this year, for the 13th time.

The opening concert starts out by paying tribute to one of the greatest figures of the swing era, the trombonist and composer Glenn Miller – his most popular songs will be performed by the cream of the Hungarian representatives of the genre, including singers Réka Koós, Adrienn Fehér, and Bernadett Tunyogi.

On one of the most special nights of the festival, the captivating personality of the world-famous performer and human rights activists, Josephine Baker, will come to life on stage, thanks to Nicole Rochelle and the Gramophonia Hot Jazz Orchestra, led by Tamás Bényei.

Last but not least, we will also evoke the spirit of one the most genial composers of the 20th century, George Gershwin: his quintet programme led by Béla Szalóky and complimented by piano virtuoso Rossano Sportiello will enchant the audience. 

End the summer with some swing.
