The ReGeneration Festival presents The Three Divas, a celebration of music as a potent force in an age of uncertainty. One hundred years ago, the Jazz Age took the world by storm. Amidst economic collapse and a global pandemic, jazz became a source of inspiration for many forms of music. In addition, from its early beginnings, jazz musicians embraced diversity and progressive ideals. The Three Divas - Anush Hovhannisyan, Shenel Johns and Veronica Swift - each from different backgrounds, collaborate across a spectrum of classical and jazz music. From operatic arias, Broadway hits to jazz standards, we celebrate a shared cultural heritage in a concert true to our time. The show also features the brilliant talents of Sam Jewison, Yasushi Nakamura, Dominick Farinacci and Dan Tepfer, in an event co-produced with Piers Playfair, founder of the Catskill Jazz Factory.
Devotion is not a band. It is a musical trinity.
Founded in the recent past, the vocal triumvirate will debut a bewitching set of iconic pop-rock standards. Their unique sound is powered by a raw blend of three unique voices accompanied by a strident instrumental sharpness. And their vision: timeless.
"We are simply envoys," say Devotion, "between a bold new generation and the battle-lines of musical goddesses who came before. Let’s sing."
Entry to the Boboli Gardens will be granted at the main entrance to the Pitti Palace and will be open to audiences from 18:40 each evening for temperature scanning and ticket checks.
