The Craig Fahle Show

Detroit-Torino Urban Jazz Project

Friday, May 25, 2012

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Jazz Festival are partnering to create the Detroit-Torino Urban Jazz Project. The project will combine music and time-lapse photography for a performance that will focus on the similarities between the two sister-cities.

The free concert, set to take place June 1, will feature the DSO and the Detroit-Torino Urban Jazz Quartet led by jazz saxophonists Chris Collins of Detroit and Emanuele Cisi of Torino. The event will also feature the North-American premiere of new pieces from composers Jim Hartway and Carlo Boccadoro.

Composer and WSU Professor of Music Jim Hartway and Detroit Jazz Festival Artistic Director Chris Collins speak with Craig about the new project.
