Cortona Jazz Workshop

Il CORTONA JAZZ WORKSHOP è una residenza artistica, coordinata dal direttore didattico Ohad Talmor, nel quale 20/25 musicisti provenienti dalle migliori scuole jazz internazionali (Conservatoire Populaire de Musique/AMR Genève, Siena Jazz, ecc), vivono e respirano le bellezze artistiche e paesaggistiche del nostro territorio, ma soprattutto hanno la possibilità di condividere idee, esperienze e, attraverso i differenti approcci, fare ricerca sotto il segno della musica jazz. Tra i docenti che si sono alternati nelle varie edizioni, abbiamo avuto: Shane Endsley, Jim Black, Ares Tavolazzi, Andre Fernandes, Stefano ``Cocco`` Cantini, Maurizio Bionda, Giulio Stracciati, Romina Capitani, Simone Graziano e Francesco Ponticelli. Le lezioni saro improntate sulla ricerca di nuove sonorità attraverso sperimentazioni basate sulla spiccata capacità d'improvvisazione dei giovani musicisti. I docenti lavorano sulla parte creativa degli studenti, cercando di scavare dentro l'anima e lo spirito di queste nuove generazioni.
