Dominick Farinacci & Spirit of the Groove: Featuring CityMusic Cleveland String Quartet
Tri-C JazzFest Academy & CityMusic Cleveland Chamber Orchestra team up for a special evening of music featuring the next generation of jazz artists from Cleveland, collaborating with CityMusic musicians. Led by internationally acclaimed trumpeter and Director of the Tri-C JazzFest Academy Dominick Farinacci, this concert marks the first of several joint performances throughout the Cleveland area, leading up to a March 2020 residency with Grammy Award Winning bassist, composer and arranger John Clayton, featuring a newly commissioned work with CityMusic Cleveland.
Spirit of the Groove, part of the JazzFest Academy at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), is an ensemble comprised of nine young artists from various high schools around the Cleveland area and region, who are all committed to pursuing jazz full-time in college. As an invite-only mentorship program, the group focuses on balancing in-classroom study with on-the-band-stand experience, holding monthly residencies at iconic local clubs such as Nighttown & The Bop Stop. Dominick Farinacci serves as director of the Tri-C JazzFest Academy program and performs with Spirit of the Groove. The program also provides opportunities to learn from and work with visiting national guest artists, most recently including Terence Blanchard, John Clayton and Patrick Bartley.Back to Calendar
