Fazioli pianos support Welwyn Garden City music festival
A LEADING piano manufacturer is supporting a music festival set for Welwyn Garden City next month.
World-famous Fazioli pianos will grace the stages at the Herts Jazz Festival being held at Campus West from Friday, September 14 to Sunday, September 16.
Organisers from Herts Jazz Club are proud to have secured the support of Fazioli, renowned for their top-quality, hand-made instruments.
Fazioli will provide two grand pianos for the second Herts Jazz Festival in WGC.
Manufactured near Venice, their instruments are considered by many to be the finest pianos made today.
Festival director Clark Tracey said: “Herts Jazz is committed to providing the very best quality to our audiences, both in terms of musicians and sound. This support from Fazioli reinforces this commitment.
“We are very grateful to Fazioli and their UK distributors, Jacques Samuel Pianos.”
Many of the UK’s finest jazz pianists will be heard at their best during the festival, including Clark’s dad Stan Tracey, Zoe Rahman, Kit Downes, Dave Newton and Steve Melling.
Echoes of Ellington will open the festival on the Friday night, with the Zoe Rahman Quartet due on at 3pm on Saturday.
