Panama Jazz Festival

Jazz Festival Brings Panama City to Life
Stay at the Country Inn & Suites, Panama Canal to be in the center of all the festivities surrounding the annual Jazz Festival. The event, held the second and third week of January, has gained momentum since its birth in 2003. Founded by Panamanian Grammy-winning pianist Danilo Perez to foster good will through shared musical experiences as listeners, on stage and in the classrooms, it has now become a cultural tourism attraction that draws thousands every year.

The festival has welcomed such artists as Oscar Cruz, Graciela Nuñez Trio, Sr. Loop, Nedelka Prescod, The Pisco Trio (George Garzone, Ehud Ettud, Jorge Perez Albela), Shea Welsh, Michelle Coltrane and Danilo Perez, among others. In addition to live music, master classes by some of the world's finest institutions are also offered during the week. These include the Berklee College of Music, the Golandsky Piano Institute, the New England Conservatory and the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. The event has also become a center of auditions for admissions and scholarships at the participating institutions.
