The Clusone Jazz Promotion Association is honoured and proud to present the 34th edition of the Clusone Jazz Festival and its latest programme in keeping with the high quality tradition of the previous events. I would like to pay tribute to the people behind the scenes who work exclusively as volunteers and very enthusiastically provide their contribution to the organisation of the festival, as, without them it would not be possible.
Furthermore I would like to remind you of some data which expresses better than any other the Association’s activity since 1980: 530 concerts organized in the province of Bergamo, Brescia, Milano, Lecco e Savona; 2.426 national and international musicians performed at the Clusone Jazz Festival; 250,000 spectators; 6,000 people visited our website; more than 3,000 Facebook contacts.
These are quite significant figures but uite Qin order to continue doing all these activities, and possibly improving the jazz education in the schools, we need new open minded members to get involved in this wonderful endeavour and willing to help us to spread the enjoyment of this exceptional and peaceful means of communication.
We would like our offices to become a meeting point for people who like to spend their free time listening to some good music, reading about jazz, consulting the archives, effecting studies and research and knowing more about other international jazz organisations.
With this hope, I wish all of you a happy and enjoyable Clusone Jazz Festival!
