JAZZING IT UP – THE MALTA SUMMER JAZZ CAMP

malta-jazz-festival-2015

The Malta Jazz Festival will be celebrating 25 years of great music and fabulous performances with an extra date to go with the highly anticipated three day programme. This year’s festival promises to be the largest and most varied it has ever been, keeping the musical thirst of its dedicated audience quenched. The festival will run from Thursday 16th till Sunday 19th July, and we are happy to announce that the final day will be supported by CHOGM to celebrate the Commonwealth Jazz Day.

In collaboration with the Valletta 2018 Foundation, the Malta Jazz Festival will be presenting the 3rd edition of the Malta Summer Jazz Camp as part of Jazz on the Fringe. The camp will feature reputable musicians and contemporary pedagogues, namely Fred Pasqua (drums and rhythm), Matyas Szandai (double bass), Claudio Angeleri (piano and jazz harmony), Sandro Zerafa (guitar), Rino Cirinna (saxophone) and Gabriele Comeglio (arrangement).
