Festival’s stellar section: Vitrin Showcase for Contemporary Music from Turkey will be held online this year
This year, Vitrin: Showcase for Contemporary Music from Turkey that supports successful musicians and ensembles of the local scene in their global outreach, will be held online with the support of +1 on 7-9 September 2020. A group of international delegates composed of leading representatives of international music industry and journalists will explore contemporary music from Turkey digitally. The series will focus on the successful musicians and ensembles of the local scene and will aim to provide them with an opportunity to reach a wider international audience.
Vitrin: Showcase for Contemporary Music from Turkey was developed to enhance intercultural dialogue through jazz and contemporary music. The rapid development of music production in Turkey and the multitude of recently emerging musicians lead to new projects not only in Turkey but also in the international arena, receiving great interest and demand. This productive environment in the local music industry has motivated the Istanbul Jazz Festival to offer an effective international platform for emerging artists.
The series will once again feature successful contemporary music and jazz artists and ensembles from Turkey. 8 online concerts to be accessed on the festival’s digital platform will be followed by prominent representatives of the international music industry between 7-9 September. The showcase will be complemented by online panels and seminars for the delegates. The sectoral meetings to be held will bring local and foreign music professionals together and establish relations that will encourage local artists to reach out to the international arena.
