Olivia Chindamo

Thursday 2 May 2024 6pm
Federation Concert Hall, nipaluna / Hobart

Bernstein ‘Times Square’, from On the Town
Joe Chindamo Fantaskatto
Gershwin Catfish Row, Suite from Porgy and Bess

Conducted by Benjamin Northey, featuring vocalist Olivia Chindamo.

Jazz meets orchestra when silky-toned Oliva Chindamo performs the vocal honours in a piece penned by her father, Joe Chindamo. Fantaskatto is a masterclass of scat singing, bringing improvised vocal instrumentalising to the orchestra for a unique and scintillating performance.

Framing Joe Chindamo’s classic-in-the-making are two established classics of American music. ‘Times Square’ by Leonard Bernstein captures the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan, while Catfish Rowby George Gershwin blends a suite of famous tunes from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess into a swirling symphonic medley.
