The Tantillo quartet, will be performing timeless jazz music aimed at the general public, including some of the most famous jazz tunes of American tradition.
It would take too long to talk about Maestro Bruno Santori, about the various compositions created, about the shows that saw him as the undisputed protagonist. But we have to mention some of them. Maestro Bruno Santori, for several years was artistic and permanent director of the “Sanremo Festival Orchestra” and currently is the Maestro of the “Mediterranean Orchestra” which was setup through the Mediterranean Tourism Foundation in which he is a Senator. Shifting through the news of his biography we will find a slogan coined by Bruno Santori himself: “Music Unites and elevates Spirituality”.
“We wanted to wrap up this aphorism in theming the last concert “Jazz for Life “, said the director Giacomo Tantillo who wanted to conclude this edition by giving the Bagherians an international excellence such as Maestro Santori.
