Experience the magic of Christmas this Saturday, December 18, with “A Warm Christmas” Concert
On December 18, at 9.30 pm, the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium, in Lagoa, receives the Algarve Jazz Orchestra and Jazz singer Marta Hugon for the concert “A Warm Christmas”.
Marta Hugon, one of the current Portuguese jazz singers with well-established credits, joins the Algarve Jazz Orchestra for “A Warm Christmas” where we will be able to listen to some of the most emblematic season standards, such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, but also others like “Time After Time”, “Misty” or “Embraceble You”. Songs immortalized by the voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and many, many other voices.
The “Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve” (Algarve Jazz Orchestra), a Big Band comprised of 18 musicians, was created after the edition of “Lagos Jazz 2004”, and was formally established in 2005 under the name of “Associação Músicas no Sul” (Music in the South Association), and currently under the name of “OJA – Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve” (Algarve Jazz Orchestra). The project is an idea of Hugo Alves, who was immediately supported by the Municipality of Lagos.
Since 2009/2010, the project has had the direct support of DGArtes, and is now a nationwide project. OJA has held hundreds of concerts to date, with highlights to the invitation by the Assembly of the Republic (2008) to perform in the Senate Room, or the ones that took place in the Teatro São Luíz and in Praça do Rossio, in Lisbon or the participation at the International Festival of Loulé Jazz.
OJA is a unique and recognized project at a national level, due to the importance it has had in promoting music and jazz in the country, in the training of musicians, and above all, for the high-quality musical shows it has provided.
Tickets cost €8 (20% discount with cultural passport, Lagoa Social card or Rota do Petisco Passport 2021, available at ticket offices in the Municipality of Lagoa) and are already on sale here and also at Fnac, Worten and at the ticket offices of the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium and Balcão Único of Lagoa City Hall.
