Jazz Hands

The Mon­treux Jazz Fes­ti­val got into full swing this July and, for the 10th year, Parmigiani Fleurier was the principal spon­sor. Mu­sic lovers flocked to the shores of Lake Geneva for the sec­ond-largest jazz fes­ti­val in the world, with VIPS en­joy­ing the sun­shine and fes­tiv­i­ties from the com­fort of the Parmigiani Fleurier lodge. Kansas born, New York-based pi­ano prodigy Ad­di­son Frei (pic­tured) was se­lected as the win­ner of the Parmigiani Mon­treux Jazz Pi­ano Solo Com­pe­ti­tion. Upon the fi­nal an­nounce­ment, the three fi­nal­ists joined to­gether in a six-hand im­pro­vised pi­ano piece, much to the joy of the crowd. Tal­ented 25-year-old Frei will now par­tic­i­pate along with two other lau­re­ates at the 4th Mon­treux Jazz Academy, set to take place in Fe­bru­ary and March next year.
