General admission: $30; Members: $20; Students: $15


Join us at CIMA for the last edition of the ‘Special Event & Aperitivo‘ series (more to come in the fall). We will celebrate the closing of our current exhibition, From Depero to Rotella: Italian Commercial Posters Between Advertising and Art, with a live concert. Jazz singer, songwriter and composer Chiara Izzi will delight us with a special jazz medley of popular Italian music from the 1930s to the 1950s, the years of our poster exhibition.

Meet in the CIMA kitchen after the concert for cocktails and light bites!

Chiara Izzi is an award-winning jazz singer and composer from Italy based in New York City since 2014, three years after Quincy Jones awarded her first prize in the 2011 Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition. In 2020 she also won one Independent Music Award for Best Jazz song with Vocals with her composition “Circles Of The Mind”. She perfectly blends traditional Italian music with jazz, Mediterreanean and pop sounds to create a dynamic and heartwarming show, singing and telling stories in four languages (Italian, English, Portuguese and Spanish). Her latest releases include Live In Bremen (Dot Time Records/2022) which embodies a classical richness enhanced by Izzi’s stylistic method of blending her lyrics and languages, and Across The Sea (Jando/2019), a cooperative project with pianist Kevin Hays. Chiara has performed in prominent New York venues such as Iridium, Birdland, The Blue Note, The Kennedy Center, Smalls, 55 Bar, sharing bandstands with such luminaries as Kevin Hays, Leon Parker, Diego Figueiredo, Jeff Hamilton, Aaron Goldberg, Bruce Barth, Eliot Zigmund, Warren Wolf, etc.
