This Sunday (May 3) Noemi Nuti & Andrew McCormack @ The Virtual Globe

(Press release)
We can’t run gigs at The Globe currently but this WON’T STOP US bringing you the very best new music!

This Sunday 3 May at 8pm we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive and intimate concert by vocalist Noemi Nuti and pianist Andrew McCormack, which we will stream live to you through Facebook.

The live #stayathome performance will feature Nuti's most recent album 'Venus Eye', released in March 2020. Venus Eye is a celebration of the modern-day female perspective through the medium of the traditional acoustic jazz quartet, the art of song form and some Latin touches.


McCormack and Nuti bring this album to life in a more intimate duo setting for the private online performance for Jazz.Coop. Its originality, melodic approach, layered harmonies and inclusion of Paraguayan harp take the audience on a journey of discovery through the ever-present excitement of jazz improvisation.

If you're a fan of Joni Mitchell, Esperanza Spalding, Brad Melhdau or Keith Jarrett, this is the gig for you!

So that Noemi and Andrew can get paid, we’d like to ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has completely stopped and is unlikely to return in the very near future.

The gig will stream on a private Facebook page, which you will need a Facebook login ID. to attend.

TO ATTEND THE GIG PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. Make a donation via the following link. Donate what you can afford, £5 is the suggested minimum. https://bit.ly/35jOvL5 

2. When you have made a donation, send a message to the Jazz.Coop Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/jazz.coop.uk/ and we will send you a link to the private Facebook group where the gig will be streamed.

3. Follow the link we send you and request to join the group.

4. Once we have received your request you will be granted access to the private group when ‘doors open’ at 7.45pm on Sunday 3 May when we have completed the online soundcheck.

NOEMI NUTI - Born in New York City and of Italian decent, Noemi Nuti is a well-established jazz vocalist based in London.

Now corrected. I took it from the Globe F/book page which may need correcting.
