Two concerts entitled Jazz under the Stars and a Gala Opera Night have been confirmed by Maestro Music Management for autumn.
Maestro MM have a well established reputation for bringing outstanding musicians and singers to perform in Lanzarote. Both of these concerts will be performed twice in two different locations, the concert hall at Bodegas El Grifo has been added as a new venue, in addition to the outdoor concert area under the canopy at Puerto Calero marina.
Jazz under the Stars
Friday 26th September 20:00 at Bodegas El Grifo
Saturday 27th September 20:00 at Puerto Calero Marina
Jazz pianist, Ivo Neame is an award-winning, distinctive jazz musician, equally at home on saxophone and piano. This double life has seen him make notable contributions to some of the finest jazz groups based in the UK. He has appeared at jazz festivals all over the world with his own bands and as a sideman. Ivo’s music is a living, breathing contradiction – complex yet accessible, considered yet spontaneous, traditional yet forward-thinking. "Remarkable writing and playing are in dazzling balance". John Fordham, The Guardian, Sept 2012
For Jazz Under The Stars, Ivo Neame (piano) is joined by Tori Freestone (sax/flute), Andrea Di Biase (double bass) and David Hamblett (drums). Maestro MM have also invited Guest Vocalist Maria Jones, a wonderful mezzo who loves to perform jazz.
The programme for “Jazz under the Stars" will be wide-ranging, with music for everyone to recognise and enjoy and you can expect to be dazzled by the virtuosity of these musicians, all highly renowned, award-winning instrumentalists who appear regularly in the world’s top jazz venues. Ivo and his band will play favourite jazz standards and contemporary compositions by some of the finest jazz composers of our time and will include several works by Ivo. The concert will also include songs offering a touch of 1930s, gypsy swing and retro jazz, sung by the enthralling artist, Maria Jones, whose rich, distinctive, mellow voice compliments the warmth, charm and exuberance that she puts into her performances. Audiences at both venues will be buzzing with the unique artistry and brilliance of these truly fabulous performers.

Gala Opera Night

Saturday 25th October 20:00 at Puerto Calero Marina
The “Gala Opera Night" concerts in October will provide a memorable evening of stunning opera arias, duets and ensembles filled with drama, passion, humour, tragedy and love. Maestro MM has engaged members of Prima Voce (Artists of The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden) and members of London Gala Opera (young artists drawn from the National Opera Companies of Great Britain) with Nicholas Bosworth (piano) to create two unique ‘opera house’ experiences. Maestro MM are delighted that the fabulous soprano, Anne Williams King will also be joining the line-up.
Once again, Maestro’s Artistic Director, John Morgan, has created another fabulous programme of opera gems; much-loved arias from your favourite operas by Mozart, Rossini, Donizetti, Puccini, Verdi and Bizet with excerpts from La Traviata, Carmen, Rigoletto, The Barber of Seville, Don Gionanni, The Pearl Fishers, Die Fledermaus and other famous operas.
