Maria dello Spasimo and Regio Teatro S.
Cecilia, pursues, on a non-profit basis, the dissemination of art and musical culture.
His Sicilian Jazz Orchestra has had the greatest conductors on a par with international orchestras, such as that of New York and London, which have made the Sicilian capital “one of the capitals of European jazz”.

“It is very important for us to host an initiative of such social importance at our headquarters” declares the president of the Brass Group, Maestro Ignazio Garsia. “We have often worked for the community and for sharing with events such as the Don Pino Puglisi Prize and the Mario and Giuseppe Francese Prize.
Once again affirming how much music is a universal language for the union of peoples and cultures, leads us to believe how much the artistic contribution can help especially in this historical moment, to carry on the human belief in aid of the most needy.
