Monfrà Jass Fest - Music Festival
21 June 2019
21st June is World Music Day and MonfJF will celebrate it with a musical marathon of 6 free concerts in the centre of Casale. We start in via Roma, at 5 pm, in front of the Santa Croce complex, with the group Quarto Strano. At 6 pm, the musical workshop of the San Paolo primary school and the Choir In.. Canto of the Academy Le Muse will perform at the Castle, while at the Cà del Gine of Largo Lanza the cocktail is with the duo Caterina Accorsi (voice) and Marcello Picchioni (piano) among the most active musicians on the Turin scene, who will pay tribute to the American songbook repertoire. At 7 pm, the group Anima Mundi conducted by Massimiliano Limonetti will parade along the streets of the city centre and another musical cocktail at the Drop Caffé with Let's Duet! Eleonora D'Ettole (voice) and Martino Vercesi (guitar). It stars one of the most interesting young Italian jazz artists with a sung story who, from blues to swing and 30s to 50s, will pay tribute to the most beautiful mainstream voices. Today, the lights of the Castle stage will turn on at 9 pm for MonfJF Young, the event dedicated to emerging jazz groups; the first to perform are Un Milione di Sogni - Musical Academy Experience. A tasty starter for the main event of the day: The Italian trio. At 10 pm, we will see three Italian jazz legends together: Dado Moroni at the piano, Rosario Bonaccorso at the bass and Roberto Gatto at the drums for an exhilirating programme. The evening will be accompanied by a tasting of Hic and Nunc wines and enriched by a literary performance (book in jazz) by Guido Michelone. The jam sessions, a feature of the Festival, will return after the concert and join musicians who have played during the day with local artists, or anyone who wants to play with them. We start at Coco Bistrot at around 11.30 pm and go on until well into the night.
Concerts in the streets of the city centre. Evening concert at the Paleologi Castle: € 4 full price € 3 under 25 years of age and Le Muse members.
