Umbria jazz Winter will hold during the last days of December and the first of Januaryy, with over one hundred events that together make up one of the traditional dates of the Italian jazz calendar.
The Festival is built around a successful tried and tested formula combining tourism and first-class music with the hospitality of one of the most beautiful towns in Umbria, rich in history and art. The programme includes new musical encounters between artists and innovative projects, and the aim is to create a musical mix that can be appreciated by both well-informed jazz lovers and also by those who are less well versed in the language of African-American music.
Orvieto’s magnificent Cathedral, built in the 1300-1500s to a plan by Lorenzo Maitani, will once again be the setting for a Mass for Peace with Gospel singers on the afternoon of New Year’s Day. Festival concerts take place at the Teatro Mancinelli, the Palazzo del Popolo, the Palazzo dei Sette.
