Mattia Facchini

Alto Saxophonist – Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra

Fortunately, I found the saxophone relatively early and was allowed to enjoy its companionship ever since. Since then, various woodwind instruments and drums have joined.
Music as a creative, eclectic form of expression, is close to my heart, and therefore I wish to have an open encounter with it. I am grateful to be involved in projects such as the JJO (Jugenjazzorchester.ch) or formations such as the “Polar Bears” – a band in which topics such as ecocide play an important role. Overall, I see music as a creative mouthpiece for addressing the political and social problems of our time. One could say that this is an “escape into the arts”.
This is my third participation in a Jazzaar production and I find the lively exchange with players as well as with international artists extremely important and rewarding.
