The City Rhythm Orchestra guests of Palazzo Piacentini

locandina-city-rhytm-orchestraOn Wednesday, October 19th, at 6pm, in Piazza Paolo Orsi (in the Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria), a date with great jazz music.

The City Rhythm Orchestra will in fact be hosted by the National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria which will bring forward the musical experimentation made famous first in Philadelphia, then throughout America.

Directed by Pete Spina and Nick Vallerio, the musical group stretches into their vast international jazz repertoire by offering listeners an engaging and exciting performance.

Count Basile and Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra and other blues legends such as Ray Charles and rock and roll artists of the ’60s and ’70s, are the favorite artists of the American orchestra, able to combine style with the mastery and refinement of sound.

In Italy, City Rhythm has already performed in the most famous cities such as Rome, Florence and Venice, but also as part of important music festivals in Umbria and Sicily.

A group of eight musicians, including vocalist Steve Ritrovato, Vicki Woodlyn and Bobby Valeno and instrumentalists Jack Hegyi (bass), Tom DeShullo (percussion), Bob Gravener (trumpet) and the aforementioned Vallerio and Spina respectively on alto sax and tenor sax.

Because the concert coincides with the initiative #mercoledìalmarrc, ticket prices will be lowered: €6 for regular tickets and €4 for reduced tickets.

The opening of the Museum, as usual, will be from 9am to 8:00pm with last admission at 7:30pm.

Starting tomorrow, there is the possibility to visit, every Wednesday until the end of December, the Hellenistic Necropolis in the basement of MArRC, discovered in the course of the construction of Palazzo Piacentini in the ’30s.
