Great success on December 12, for the duo Roberta Gambarini and Jeb Patten wo performed at the Embassy of Italy. The Italian jazz singer and local pianist delighted the embassy guests with a program of jazz music, with some great American and Italian classics, interpreted in an innovative and engaging way. Alongside some improvisations, the duo also paid a tribute to the upcoming holiday season.
Roberta Gambarini and Jeb Patten close a year full of cultural events that saw Italy as a protagonist on the capital’s music scene, thanks in particular to the festival “Unexpected Italy: A Celebration of Italian Culture” organized in spring in collaboration with the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Italian Cultural Institute. In the framework of the Festival, artists of the caliber of Einaudi, Capossela, Bondi, Rea and many others performed in Washington.
Yesterday’s concert closes the series “Women who Jazz” launched in 2019 by the Italian Cultural Institute with concerts by the Ada Montellanico Quartet, Federica Fornabaio and Angelo Oliviero, Chiara Civello, Rita Marcotulli and Maria Pia De Vito.
