Supporting young musicians: conservatories and orchestras.

The Sicilia Jazz Festival takes flight. From tomorrow until July 7, the only festival in the world of productions will open the curtain in Palermo, in the historic center of the city for the enhancement of the territory and this year in different cities with concerts throughout Sicily.

Concerts will take place featuring big names, resident musicians, Maestros, and young talents from the Conservatories of our Island. The Sicilia Jazz Festival, now in its fourth year, is unique as it was born during the pandemic, demonstrating that music and culture are symbols of rebirth and inner strength. The festival boasts of being a musical event with exclusive jazz productions compared to many other international festivals. For the fourth edition, international artists will be present with exclusive European productions and premieres for fifteen consecutive days, with a total of eight orchestral productions and 72 concerts in four different venues in Palermo.

The Festival, organized by the Sicilian Region – Department of Tourism, Sports and Entertainment, in collaboration with the Municipality of Palermo, features original productions by the Fondazione The Brass Group and contributions from the jazz departments of various conservatories in Sicily. The festival aims to showcase young talents representing the future of the music industry, with performances by their youth orchestras directed and accompanied by teachers.

The program includes performances by international artists such as Arturo Sandoval, Ron Carter, Philip Lassiter, Arisa, Noemi, Cori Henry, Veronica Swift, and Take 6, closing the SJF 24 on July 7. The festival also features artists from Poland, the Netherlands, and Serbia, thanks to partnerships with international institutions. The goal is to involve regional educational institutions, local musicians, and local craftsmen in a concrete structural synergy.

The historic center of the city will also be enlivened by the Marching Brass Street Band, who will perform along the pedestrian areas of Palermo’s historic center, one of the largest in Europe, every afternoon from tomorrow until July 7. The festival will also feature performances by Sicilian musicians in historic locations.
