Improvisations, jazz favorites, duets, trios, solos, choruses, ensembles and orchestras - each performer crafted each performance down to the tiniest details. The nailbiting anticipation among performers, their teachers, and their parents is finally at an end, as all the prizes and diplomas have been awarded, the final impressions exchanged among the competitors - the 4th International Children's Jazz Festival ILS has reached its end.
"We congratulate all the winners," says 4th International Children's Jazz Festival director and ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. "I know that all the competitors felt a strong desire to be the best, and many achieved their goal, as the judges made their decisions and announced the winners. All of us now await the 5th International Children's Jazz Festival, where I am sure the performers' mastery will be even higher! Congratulations to all!"
