On the 17th of December, at 7 pm, the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium will host the concert “A Christmas Story”, which brings together the Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve and Ilse Huizinga on stage for an evening filled with the best Christmas classics.
Synopsis: Ilse Huizinga is one of the most renowned jazz singers in Holland and, this year, she is our guest for the last program of the year.
She will thus be one of the guests at these three concerts with the Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve, in Silves, Lagoa and Lagos, and also at two concerts in Quintet format, in Tavira and Cachopo, the latter included in Cachopo Jazz 22 ‘.
But yes, we have yet another guest for this Tour: Michael Lauren, the New York drummer, who comes to show all his mastery and musicality.
These Concerts use a more traditional language, namely jazz orchestras from the 40’s to the 60’s, in various themes and orchestrators, including some of the “season”. We can highlight Daydream, Did You Mean It, What Are You Doing New Years’ Eve, or Let It Snow.
Thus recalled some orchestrations heard in the voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, among other voices.
This is how we close the year 2022, the year in which the most sold-out theaters ever were registered, and to whom we are all grateful! Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
