All-Cuban quartet with danceable rhythms
BRATTLEBORO- The Vermont Jazz Center is excited to present pianist Harold López-Nussa and his all-Cuban quartet on Saturday, November 2, as part of the VJC’s Emerging Artist Festival.
This event is being held in memory of the VJC’s dear friend and generous patron, Jonathan Flaccus, whose passion for Cuban music and classic bebop as well as his generosity in assisting those in need has had a great impact on the Jazz Center.
This is a rare opportunity to hear the López-Nussa Quartet live, as they are based in Cuba and are coming to the VJC as part of a tour that will take them to seven venues on the East Coast as well as performances in France and the United Kingdom.
The music performed by López-Nussa is infused with the danceable rhythms of Cuba. He will be performing with Mayquel González on trumpet, Julio Céasar González on electric bass and his brother, Ruy Adrían López-Nussa, on drums and percussion. Although the members are quite young, this group has been playing together for 10 years.
Come to the Jazz Center on Saturday, November 2, for two special events: a 2 pm workshop, free and open to the public; and a ticketed concert at 8 pm. Young performers (under 21) are encouraged to bring their instruments.
Tickets for the Harold López-Nussa Quartet at the Vermont Jazz Center are $20 and up for general admission and $15 for students with ID. The concert will likely sell out so be sure to purchase tickets in advance.
The workshop is free and open to the public. For tickets call (802) 254-9088 to reserve or visit vtjazz.org.
