Awaiting the Barga Jazz Festival..

Awaiting the Barga Jazz Festival..

John Taylor will be the guest of honor of the twenty-eighth edition of BargaJazz, the annual festival for composition and arrangement for jazz orchestra since 1986, an important milestone in the career of many professional composers for jazz orchestra.


The competition, which is held every year in Barga in August, will be dedicated to the arrangements  of the British pianist that, as well as playing with the BargaJazz Orchestra, will present his project “John plays Paul”, on music by Paul McCartney.


The BargaJazz Contest will be part of the Festival again this year.  It’s dedicated to emerging bands and aims to involve more and more young people and bring them closer to jazz music.


The outdoor initiatives Barga IN Jazz (already one of the most engaging outdoor events of the Barga Summer scene with concerts and shows in the historic center) and EnoJazz Night (a unique evening organized in collaboration with local wineries) have been confirmed.  Masterclass and practical and theoretical seminars are also anticipated.
