JAZZ ENSEMBLE WORKSHOP
JULY 4th – 11th, 2015
Big Band – May, 4th
Jazz Ensemble – June, 15th
The LABohème cultural association, in cooperation with the City of Stintino, organises the second edition of “Stintino Jazz – Seminario di Musica d’insieme jazz”, a Jazz ensemble workshop, from July 4th to 11th 2015.
The seminar, with an online admission, is open to all the musicians who have good knowledge of their instrument and basic music score reading skill. It’s not required to have improvisational skills nor to know the jazz language, which is why the course is also addressed to classical musicians. Moreover, as the course is focused on ensemble music and not on instruments, it is essential that all instruments, not just those of our teachers, participate.
This year’s seminar will run along two main tracks:
Big Band, La fabbrica dei suoni, with Bruno Tommaso, from July 4th to 11th;
Ensemble music, from July 4th to 10th, with the four teachers who contributed to the success of last year’s edition: Giovanni Falzone (trumpet), Michel Godard (tuba), Gavino Murgia (sax) and Michele Rabbia (drums).
All the participants of Big Band course, a novelty of this edition, will work for the whole period with Bruno Tommaso, and they will finish with a final concert on July 11th.
The students of the Ensemble workshop will be selected to form groups with which they will work for the entire period; each ensemble will attend lessons with all teachers in turn. On the 7th and 10th of July, the groups will perform in concert. Students and teachers are welcome to stay together on Saturday 11 for the final concert of the Big Band.
The setting is renown: the wonderful Stintino, with its beaches, its harbors and squares, where several jam sessions with teachers and pupils will take place.
