An all-female preview, with Noa, a famous Israeli singer who will open the festival that comes this year to its XXIV edition. One of the most intense voices in today’s panorama returns to Fano, after the first performance in 2000, to kick off the event in Piazza XX Settembre.
Afterwards we will find great names of artists already known to the Fano Jazz By The Sea audience, but also many new features. From John Scofield-Brad Mehldau-Mark Guiliana, to Yellowjackets, through Kenny Garret and Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba’s Volcan Trio.
Internationally renowned artists from all over the world, whose performances, as reported by Corriere Adriatico, also that year “will be accompanied by numerous other initiatives that together make Fano one of the most jazzy cities of next summer, not only in Italy”.
Eight days of festivals that have touched theaters, churches and squares throughout Fano, from the Teatro della Fortuna to the Corte Sant’Arcangelo, which will host the revelation of the festival: the group Phronesis, Anglo-Norwegian trio who chose the festival for the first performance Italian.
Also reconfirmed the traditional free concert at the Golena del Furlo, in Acqualagna, with the American No BS! Brass Band.
There are also many side events, including “an unprecedented series of solo performances entitled Exodus – The echoes of migration, hosted in the afternoon in the Church-Pinacoteca San Domenico and the Abbey of San Vincenzo al Furlo”.
Space for young people with the “Young Jazz” festival, which will offer the chance to perform even new talents from the Marche region.
There were also many meetings, dialogues, film screenings and book presentations, as well as the well-established “Street Jazz In Town” aperitif concerts, hosted by bars in the historic center.
Also important is the collaboration with the School of Communication Sciences of the University of Urbino Carlo Bo ‘, which allowed some students to become part of the Fano Jazz By The Sea staff and to take care of their communication strategy.
An absolute novelty was the “Jazz: musical culture of peoples” competition, in collaboration with the Institute for training journalism in Urbino.
The commitment of the artistic director Adriano Pedini and the entire staff of Fano Jazz Network, in collaboration with the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Fano, has once again paid off.
Thanks, however, to the support of the regional institutions and the Ministry of Cultural Activities Mibact, reconfirmed for the second consecutive year, which allowed to keep up the artistic quality of the festival program, essential to make Fano Jazz By The Sea a tourist attraction which attracts more and more tourists, not only Italians, from year to year.
