Stephane Wrembel at the Sanctuary
The Sanctuary is very excited to be hosting the amazing Stephane Wrembel and his jazz quartet for two unforgettable performances and several gypsy jazz masterclasses on Friday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th.
"Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today, Mr. Wrembel plays the guitar with a rich and colorful lyricism." - New York Times
Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world. The breadth and range of his playing and compositions are unmatched. This prolific, virtuoso guitarist has been releasing a steady stream of music since 2006 and has truly made his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. He is widely known for Bistro Fada, the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar winning film and Grammy Award winning soundtrack, Midnight In Paris.
On Friday, September 18th, Stephane will present his latest album, The Django Experiment V. The concept of The Django Experiment is a tribute to the legendary Romani guitarist Django Reinhardt, mixing compositions and influences from other landscapes of the musical world aiming to create an inner journey for the listener. Youve never heard Djangos music played at this level of virtuosic intensity and spiritual-emotional richness.
On Saturday, September 19th, the band will be performing Wrembel's original material such as Bistro Fada from the Grammy Award winning soundtrack of Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.
Both shows are 7 to 9 PM. This is an outdoor concert on the Sanctuary's Community Stage and is contingent on fair weather. Guests are invited to a socially-distanced (6 ft apart) picnic in the Sanctuary's spacious meadow. The land trust is open to the public daily 9 am to 5 pm, and guests are invited to come early to wander the 40 acre land trust.
Tickets: $30 advance or $50 for both nights / $35 door. Kids 16 and under free.
Two Master Classes in Gypsy Jazz Guitar
Wrembel will also be offering two master class guitar clinics during his weekend stay at the Sanctuary. The first class on Saturday morning, Sept. 19th 10 am to 12 noon is dedicated to the subtle art of rhythm and harmony. The second class on Sunday morning, Sept. 20th will focus on the Art of creating Melodic Lines. These classes are $80 each or $140 for both. See the Facebook event page for these classes to reserve your space.
