Special Christmas event at the wonderful setting of Palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro for the Jazz Christmas concert of the JAZZ VENICE TRIO.
From 7.00 pm our guests will be welcome by a prosecco glass waiting for the starting of the buffet dinner that in the occasion of Christmas night will be composed by a selection of sweet and savoury finger food (don't missed to taste Pandoro e Panettone, special dessert of the Venitian tradition) together with a selection of wines, teas anc coffee.
Following the dinner time, the concert Christams in Jazz, a concert that, at its second edition, is one of the most awaited to live the magic of Christmas in Venice: in a intime and charming location, you will be involved in a touching and elegant atmosphere guided by the intense and polished sounds of Francesca Viaro's voice together with the extraordinary and dynamic Marco Ponchiroli (piano) and Alvise Seggi (doublebass).
The programme features the most famous traditional Christmas songs with a touch of jazz and swings, songs that symbolize the "sound track" of the Christmas period.
As setting of this special event, we have choosen palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro, a palace built in XIV century by Morosini family (and subsequently residence of a branch of the Contarinis) where the splendid original courtyard and the elgant interioris are preserved.
