Summary of project results

 

The project CBJAZZ implemented by Hungarian and Norwegian organisations focused on the introduction and promotion of the jazz art and the work of jazz performers. The most important achievement of the Hungarian-Norwegian music partnership was that jazz genre was made widely accessible to the public reaching more than 20,000 target persons thanks partly to the concerts held in Hungary and Norway, and partly to the unique music education course which students, amateur and professional jazz musicians from all over the country attended. The number of the professional persons involved was 17. The travel to Norway aimed at creating a jazz music platform, negotiating professional issues with the project partner and artists. In Bergen, Norway, two concerts were held on March 11 and April 1, and in Oslo on March 10 and March 31. During the bilateral cooperation, the image of jazz style has been raised to a higher level. Zala County Development Nonprofit Ltd. with its Norwegian project partner jointly established a common professional jazz platform, a music CD was released under Norwegian-Hungarian co-production, and three video clips were made. Records taken of street music have been used to make the video clips. All results of the project are available on the project's official website (http://cbjazz.omega-csoport.hu/), including the video clips .
