Umbria Jazz Winter 29

Orvieto, December 28, 2022 - January 1, 2023

Umbria Jazz Winter #29 can be summarized in a few words: great music and enthusiasm. Over 6,000 tickets were sold, with almost always sold-out concerts at the Teatro Mancinelli.

Local hotels and restaurants sold out during the Festival as confirmation of the great attraction of the event. Orvieto never disappoints and remains a certainty for lovers of cultured, fine and immersive music and those who love art and beauty tout court.

After two years of interruption due to the pandemic, the New Year’s Mass in the Cathedral with the gospel choir is the most awaited event. Radio Monte Carlo, the Festival’s official radio station, and social media talked about the Festival: almost 500,000 impressions, over 2,800 reactions and about 19,000 interactions on Facebook, while Instagram impressions reached nearly 170,000 in only four days.

The magic of great music takes place in one of the most charming cities of Umbria for Umbria Jazz Winter #29. The Festival’s signature lies in the balance between culture and tourism, two crucial mosaic tiles describing the high standard of living that Orvieto and its land can offer its visitors and locals. Umbria Jazz Winter is confirmed as a flagship event of the winter tourist season nationally, both for its history (2023 will be its 30th anniversary) and its formula, which lies in an attractive program and the charm and warmth of an art city like Orvieto.

The fil rouge of the 2022-2023 edition is characterized by excellent musical quality: Dianne Reeves sings Burt Bacharach with the Umbria Jazz Orchestra conducted and arranged by Ethan Iverson; Javier Girotto with his quintet, Kris Davis, Romero Lubambo; the elegant and majestic duo of Larry Grenadier and Rebecca Martin. And more: Vinicio Capossela’s return to Umbria Jazz, Jon Cleary’s talent, Funk Off’s energy, a tribute to Charles Mingus, the UJ audience favorite Allan Harris and Orchestra Jazz Giovani Talenti.
