Charlottesville Sister Cities Commission Announces Premiere of "Storie Musicali"


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The  Charlottesville Sister Cities Commission is pleased to announce the YouTube premiere of one of our 2020 Grant projects!

 

“Storie Musicali,” Italian for “Musical Stories,” will be soon to be available for all of Charlottesville’s citizens to enjoy.  Brought to life by Charlottesville musicians Wes Swing and Kelley Libby, “Musical Stories” presents a creative and intriguing sound exchange between Charlottesville and Poggio a Caiano, our Italian Sister City.

After a two-year delay thanks to the pandemic, Wes and Kelley travelled to Poggio a Caiano in March 2022 to record local music and a variety of sounds, in collaboration with Poggio a Caiano citizens. Doing the same in Charlottesville, they then mixed the two soundscape collections to create a unique piece that can be heard for the first time on YouTube, Sunday July 10 at 3:00 PM (Charlottesville time; 9:00 PM Poggio a Caiano time).

Be sure to listen in, as citizens of both Charlottesville and Poggio simultaneously share a special experience, one that connects the two cities in yet one more way. The audio piece will be available at THIS LINK .
