The playbill of  the Sicilia Jazz Festival


The Sicilia Jazz Festival is a major event for our wonderful Sicily, as Maestro Ignazio Garsia, president of The Brass Group Foundation, declared during the press conference.
Not only does this festival offer the local and tourist public a series of extraordinary concerts, but it also represents an unprecedented opportunity to involve the musical excellence of our region, including the talented musicians from the local music conservatories.
The conservatories involved are: ‘Vincenzo Bellini of Catania’, ‘Arcangelo Corelli’ of Messina, ‘Alessandro Scarlatti’ of Palermo, ‘Antonio Scontrino’ of Trapani and ‘Arturo Toscanini’ of Ribera, the latter being a source of pride as, thanks to the commitment of director Riccardo Ferrara and the professors, it has been transformed from a state conservatoire to a state conservatoire.
All in all, there are all the premises for this year’s edition of the Sicilia Jazz Festival to offer an authentic spectacle, repeating previous editions.
