Soothing jazz at the Caetani courtyards

Soothing jazz sounds fill the Caetani Cultural Centre, drawing inspiration from across Canada

Soothing jazz sounds fill the Caetani Cultural Centre courtyard, drawing inspiration from the four corners of Canada.

Harry Vetro is the recipient of the 2017 Special Projects Music Grant with the FMUA (Faculty of Music Undergraduate Association) at the University of Toronto, and will be playing at the Caetani Centre July 28 from 7 to 8 p.m.

The grant aims to record a full length album. For the grant, Vetro — who is currently studying music in the University of Toronto Jazz Program — proposed to travel across Canada to investigate the music and culture across the nation. He plans to visit various areas in Canada, including the Arctic, the Subarctic, the Northwest Coast, the plateau, the plains, and the eastern woodlands.

During his travels, he is stopping in Vernon for an artist residency at the Caetani Cultural Centre. During his stay at the Centre, he will be working on his compositions, and command the drums as jazz musicians Harrison Argatoff plays saxophone, Madeline Ertel leads trumpet, and Alexander Argatoff on bass.

Sales of Vetro’s album will go towards purchasing musical instruments to support programs for indigenous youth.

Admission by donation.
