Depending on the amount of money donated, the viewer may get different souvenirs starting from a badge, a set of three postcards, a bottle of soap bubbles, and ending with a branded bottle, a t-shirt, and an inflatable sofa.
Donation may vary from 50 to 4,500 rubles.
A loose-leaf wall calendar is of particular interest. It starts from the opening of the festival "Jazz May - 2017" and finishes with May 2018.
It is illustrated with sketches made by 13 Penza artists.
The project involves the art directors of the sculpture park “Legenda” Valentina Dusavitskaya and Yuri Tkachenko, the author of numerous solo-exhibitions Dmitry Zharov, the head of the art studio "Forma" Olga Novgorodskaya, the illustrator Anna Zavyalova, the journalist KseniaVdovikina and other artists - both professionals and amateurs.
The illustrations represent free sketches on the theme of the festival.
Those who want to support the project should transfer 1,000 rubles via a fundraising operator represented by the community foundation "Civil Union" and pick up the calendar at an information desk on May 20-21.
It will also be available on the market but the number of copies will be limited.
As it was reported earlier, the 7th festival "Jazz May" will feature representatives of six countries. These are the USA, Spain, France, Hungary, Luxembourg, and Russia.
The singing pianist Dena DeRose, the international team "Electric Shock", the Moscow band "Miraif" and its unchallenged vocalist Mariam Merabova will perform on the main stage - in the cinema concert hall "Penza". The audience will hear several premières. These are the programme of the Hungarian guitarist Mike Gothard from the band "Electric shock", the album "Flow" of the Moscow singer Alina Rostotskaya and the album of the piano trio "Dock in Absolute" from Luxembourg.
In 2017, for the first time, a three-day school of jazz singing will be organized within the framework of the 7th international jazz music festival “Jazz May”. Workshops will be conducted by Dena DeRose, Mariam Merabova and Alina Rostotskaya.
