VMF announces diverse, star-filled 28th festival set for July 28-30 and August 4-6.
“Live events are back and we are beyond excited about the artist line-up for this summer,” says VMF Executive Director Susan Scott.
5-time Grammy Winner, Dianne Reeves, one of the pre-eminent jazz vocalists in the world today, headlines. Also, Mark O’Connor, a musical genius considered by many to be “the most influential fiddle player ever.”
There is the sublime artistry of guitarist Ana Vidovic, and the Grammy-nominated jazz supergroup, Special EFX All-Stars, featuring guitarist, bandleader and 3x Emmy winner Chieli Minucci, joined by Elliott Yamin, Brian Bromberg, Jeff Kashiva, Lao Tizer and Gene Coye.
The Moanin’ Frogs sextet, (Covid-beset in 2022) finally arrives to perform this summer featuring all six saxophones from soprano to bass in an electrifying, delight-producing program.
And to expand the programming even further, we kick things off (pun intended) with choreographer and tap prodigy Caleb Teicher who joins piano virtuoso Conrad Tao. Together, they create magic onstage. In their second national tour, they bring “Counterpoint,” an artistic collaboration exploring the intersections between their artistic worlds.
Program schedule and details, along with video clips are online at www.VenturaMusicFestival.org. Ticket prices range from $15 to $65. A 15% Early Bird Discount is available May 1-21, accessed with the discount code: CELEBRATE.
