Igot Butman and Moscow Jazz Orchestra

March 31 and April 1, 2016 will see the International Music Humour Festival in Chelyabinsk. Jazz musicians from America and Russia will take part in the project, inspired by the world famous saxophonist, the RF People's Artist Igor Butman, who will be the headliner of the festival.

The festival concept assumes participation of representatives of all genres, formats and trends of modern music that can express something cheerful, funny, wise and positive. Jazz with its filigree technique and spirit of freedom, as well as a pinch of mischief and experiment is eminently suitable for it.

The festival program is rich, bright and eventful. Two festival concerts will take place in the Sergey Prokofiev Philharmonic Hall and will present brilliant. The audience will take pleasure in world hits and modern jazz compositions performed by the Moscow Jazz Orchestra, the drummer Sammy Miller with his band The Congregation (USA), improvisations by the trumpet master Vadim Eilenkrieg, the host of Big Jazz telecast on Kultura TV channel and naturally Igor Butman.

Chelyabinsk jazz musicians will make an integral part of the festival – the Korchagin Band and the instrumental ensemble Ural Dixie Land are known far beyond the Ural Region.

All these top musicians perform in dozens of projects and tour worldwide, but for Igor Butman's star project they will get together on Chelyabinsk stage.

A special guest of the festival will be the most talented young pianist Oleg Akkuratov. The musician is really unique – despite his complete blindness, in his 25 years of age he is already the winner of numerous Russian and international music competitions, a world famous musician who plays in the largest concert halls of the world, in particular, accompanied Montserrat Caballe. He has perfect pitch and absolute musical memory. Lyudmila Gurchenko dedicated to Oleg Akkuratov her debut work as a film director – the movie Motley Twilight released in 2009.

It is a reminder that the decision on holding the International Music HUmor Festival was taken by the governor of the Chelyabinsk Region, Boris Dubrovsky after a sitting in the framework of the Days of Chelyabinsk Region at the Federation Council.

According to the festival inspirer and headliner Igor Butman, he wants the festival to be a warm and a friendly event, since the listeners are friends, and music is a way of communication with them. He also believes that the audience will take enjoyment in both jazz standards, and original adaptations.

Festival tickets are already on sale. They are available in ticket offices of the Sergey Prokofiev Concert Hall and the Rodina Concert Hall in Chelyabinsk.
