Orquestra Jazz de Leiria postpones concerts celebrating a decade of existence to September 2022
With special guests Ana Bacalhau, António Zambujo, Aurea, Camané, David Fonseca, Luísa Sobral, Pedro Abrunhosa and Tomás Pimentel
Initially scheduled for January 7 at Coliseu do Porto, with guests António Zambujo, Aurea, Camané and David Fonseca, and January 22 at Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon, with Ana Bacalhau, David Fonseca, Luísa Sobral, Pedro Abrunhosa and Tomás Pimentel, the concerts celebrating a decade of existence of the Orquestra Jazz de Leiria are now postponed to September, dates to be announced soon. The postponement is the result of a preventive strategy on the part of the organization since the initial dates coincided with the time period in which public health organizations foresee a peak in infections and hospitalizations. Tickets already purchased for both shows remain valid for the new dates in September.
All the guests present at the Coliseum are part of the range of musicians who participated in the recordings of “Dez”, the album that Orquestra Jazz de Leiria released on December 3, with the aim of celebrating its 10 years of life and leaving a legacy for the history of music in Portugal.
In total, “Dez” has guests Ana Bacalhau, António Zambujo, Aurea, Camané, David Fonseca, who participates in the single “It Ain’t Over”, Herman José, Jorge Palma, Luísa Sobral, Maria João, Miguel Araújo, Pedro Abrunhosa, Pedro Moreira, Tomás Pimentel and Vânia Fernandes. The repertoire on the album is based on original themes, Portuguese music and jazz standards, with arrangements specifically made by César Cardoso and Pedro Nobre.
The Orquestra Jazz de Leiria is a project by the musician César Cardoso, which emerged in February 2011 with the aim of creating quality training and bringing together musicians from the region who were dedicated to the practice of this style of music. Throughout its existence, the orchestra produced and performed dozens of concerts, many of them with special guests, from the most varied areas of Portuguese music. These concerts were always specifically and individually prepared for each of the guest artists, who saw their music “rewritten“, adapted and arranged in the context of the “Big Band“.
