Get ready for a mind-blowing musical extravaganza that blends the timeless elegance of classical, the soulful improvisation of jazz, and the traditional folk melodies in our own interpretation.
Are you interested to learn how different genres of music influence each other? Can you recognize Chopin’s melody in the Bossa Nova hit “How Insensitive” performed by Frank Sinatra and Sting? Are you curious to hear our own jazz variations on the themes of folk songs from Central Europe?
