Umbria Jazz

  • Umbria Jazz

    Muziekliefhebbers zouden moeten overwegen om de regio te bezoeken tijdens Umbria Jazz. De regio host namelijk het grootste en meest bekende jazzfestival van Italië, maar probeert de buit te verdelen onder verschillende steden in Umbrië. Onlangs is het festival succesvol uitgebreid met meerdere versies die in verschillende seizoenen worden gehouden. De bekendste versie van het festival blijft echter Umbria Jazz in de zomer, dat plaatsvindt in Perugia, terwijl de winterversie van Umbria Jazz in Orvieto plaatsvindt, tegen het einde van december. In de lente vindt Umbria Jazz plaats in Terni, meestal eind april. De Orvieto-versie van het festival brengt vaak een Amerikaanse jazz van een hoog niveau ten gehore, maar het festival heeft altijd een eclectisch programma. Het zomerjazzfestival biedt meer dan alleen maar jazz, variërend van muziek van Gilberto Gil tot Pat Metheny.
