While Jazz Camp preparations are well on the way, this spring the JazzWorks team has a few other events on the go. First on the list next Saturday is our Taste of Torino event. This event is tagged as a fundraiser, and our wonderful musicians have offered their services at reduced rates to help make this happen...But we need YOU, our JW community, to come out and support this event. Your $55 ticket (Friend price) includes a $20 assortment of hot Italian appetizers, and cool Italian pastries, plus a couple of hot Italians on piano and sax. PLUS Julie Michels, Nick Fraser and Kieran Overs. It doesn’t get any better than this!
And last, but not least, we would like to thank our major sponsors.
Imagine a lively jazz venue, nestled into a beautiful Italian cityscape, brimming with excited enthusiasts and offering tasty tapas and desserts. A Taste of Torino brings that experience to Ottawa, to the lovely Tudor Hall.
This concert connects Canadian greats, jazz vocalist Julie Michels, along with Nick Fraser (drums) and Kieran Overs (bass), with Italian jazz greats Fulvio Albano (sax) and Massimo Foraó (piano).
You’ve seen her at JazzWorks JazzCamp, and likely on tour – she travels around the globe. About this concert Julie says “A few years ago I met two amazing musicians in a little club in Torino, Italy. – Saxophonist Fulvio Albano, and pianist Massimo Faraò. We hit it off, and before we parted we talked about getting together again for a crazy, wonderful concert. Well, that day has come folks! We'll be joined by bassist Kieran Overs, and drummer Nick Fraser. It's going to be an amazing night!”
The evening includes Cash Bar, Silent Auction & Door Prizes, 2 Sets of music, plus hot appetizers and dessert.
