Description

Bergamo is very proud of taking part in the International Jazz Day: 157 musicians are going to perform for free in a non-stop concert, to share a message of unity and freedom in the name of a great cultural phenomenon, Jazz music.

Bergamo becomes the stage of a phenomenal music happening within the International Jazz Day: promoted by UNESCO and by the legendary pianist Herbie Hancock, this event aims to spread jazz all over the world, a music genre created by African American culture, fostering it as a symbol of fraternity, respect and freedom of expression.

The Auditorium Piazza della Libertà, on Saturday April 30th at 8.00 p.m., is going to host an amazing concert featuring musicians from Lombardy and Bergamo, along with international special guests. Meanwhile, thousands of other jazz musicians are going to play all over the world: Bergamo is no exception!

Why join it: it will be a great international event, featuring 157 talented musicians and an amazing cultural phenomenon, Jazz music! 

In addition to the main event, on this occasion to celebrate jazz, dedicated to Paolo Arzano, there will be other important events, organised in three themed groups:

 

-“La città del jazz – The city of jazz” – concerts and theatre performances,

-“La città che ascolta – The city that listens” – seminars, meetings with schools, debates,

-“La città e gli occhi – The city and the eyes” – art and photography exhibitions.
