“…left the musicians breathless and the audience whooping with delight”The Age

“a revelation…Virna Sanzone conveyed so much emotion in vocals that were powerful yet often caressing, the degree of care taken giving the impression that the sounds were being nurtured as they emerged” – Roger Mitchell (ausjazz.net)

Returning to the Foundry616 stage, jazz singer Virna Sanzone presents ‘In Italiano’, a performance entirely in Italian, to celebrate 2nd June being Festa Della Repubblica (Italian National Day). Virna brings together the crème of Australian jazz to awaken songs from as far back as the poetic Neapolitan tradition through to popular music of the early twentieth century.

Virna Sanzone is acknowledged as one of Australia’s most distinguished jazz and soul artists, a singer whose strengths are her own defined style and tone. Deeply soulful, yet with the ability to sail effortlessly through the most intricate jazz melodies, she is renowned for her passionate delivery and remarkable improvisational approach.

Having worked consistently with many great artists both in Australia and overseas, Virna has been an integral part of projects that have seen her move across a diverse range of genres., including The Italian Project, a collaboration with pianist Paul Grabowsky which received rave reviews at the 2014 Stonnington Jazz Festival.

Foundry616 is thrilled to welcome her back to the stage with her quartet for a night of contemporary jazz at it’s very best.

“Sanzone has a voice like the caramel layer in a piece of caramel slice…so smooth, warm and pliable…and you’d definitely want a second serve with another piece to take home. It’s rich and beautiful.” Sydney Morning Herald
