Music in the Vineyards

July 3, 2012 to July 8, 2012

‘Music in the Vineyards’ will once again be a highlight of the summer activities scene in Rioja Alavesa.  This summer, from July 3 through July 8 the sounds of jazz will echo through the villages under the auspices of the Cuadrilla de Rioja Alavesa (local government) and the Rioja Alavesa Wine Route.

The theme this year is the Big Band Festival, featuring the Gasteiz Big Band, the Big Band Berri, the Deba Band, Piccolo y Saxo and as an added attraction, the TxikiTxiki Big Band, made up of young music students from the area who will attend workshops and auditions where they will rehearse the tunes they will play during their concert on July 7 in Labastida as the opening act for a well-known big band.

One of the main attractions is the Puerto Rican sax player Miguel Zenón, nominated several times for a Grammy,  who will play on July 6 in Laguardia.
