Gypsy Jazz with Tim Kliphuis and Alfonso Ponticelli at MSUB
A very special evening of world-class Gypsy Jazz music! Award-winning violin legend Tim Kliphuis (Holland) teams up with America’s top gypsy jazz guitarist, Alfonso Ponticelli (Chicago) to highlight the music of famed musical duo Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. Re-creating the 1930s in Paris, and drawing inspiration from current-day gypsy, classical and folk music as well, they alternate moments of dazzling interplay with melancholy and sheer exhilaration, in an inspired musical journey. Tim Kliphuis is a master of the violin and a wizard of sound. Using classical, gypsy jazz and folk he has created a unique style that is making waves in concert halls across the globe. Guitarist Alfonso Ponticelli is the driving force of gypsy jazz in the city of Chicago. His guitar style effortlessly combines gypsy, flamenco (which he studied in Spain with Manolo Sanlucár) and traditional American folk.
Event will be held at Cicel Hall on the MSU-Billings Campus.
