The Golden Years of Jazz in Canelli

Canelli. A concert to crown the success of the fourth season of the Riccadona Concerts starts tonight at 21:15. In it sings American soubrette Phyllis Blanford accompanied by pianist Massimo Faraò.

The protagonist Phyllis Blanford has had an interesting life: born in Florida, she studied acting, singing and dancing in Stockton University in New Jersey. After graduation, she studied at the Actor’s Studio –  the famous school “made in the USA” that formed the most famous actors and actresses. Then came her big decision to move across the ocean and discover Italy. The American-born actress chose to settle in Rome, a city she describes as her favorite, after her great success with the theater Eliseo in Rome, with the show “Oh Jerusalem”.

Phyllis Blanford has also performed in numerous festivals – both Italian and Foreign – from the Todi Jazz Festival at the New York Public Theater to Saint Louis Music City she did it all. She also performed in a scene from the famous “Cafe La Mama Theater” – a tribute to the avant-garde 80’s.

This has been a successful season organized by Lorella Riccadonna, with the sponsorship of Bols Italy, the City of Canelli, the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, and the Piedmont Region. The festival has attracted a considerable number of fans.
