SYJO - Transatlantic Rhapsody


Transatlantic Rhapsody

Performance by the Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO):
April 21, 2018 in KUK Aarau
April 22, 2018 in Conza Lugano (EFG private event)
Transatlantic Rhapsody is a compilation of new compositions written by Fritz K Renold and Gil Goldstein that portrays the union and possibility of reunion between cultures on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This promises an interesting dialog between the world of Jazz, European folk and popular music to profoundly show how unity can very well be found in diversity. The Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO) directed by Renold featuring renowned musicians will present the premier at the Jazzaar Festival.
The remarkable SYJO, made up of youth musicians 16 – 26 years of age will be accompanied and mentored on the bandstand by seasoned international artistes through a week of rehearsals, workshops and a jam session in the process leading to the performance of this premiering musical work. The featured guests are Frank Greene (Ltp), Billy Harper (ts), Tom ‘Bones’ Malone (tb), Gil Goldstein (acc/p), Michael Baker (d).
