Trumpeter Dominick Farinacci is determined to perform safely during the pandemic and will be hosting a special Valentine’s Day program on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. while he is hosting a new livestream concert he calls Love Notes.
The performance will feature Veronica Swift, a talented young singer from the New York jazz scene.
The concert is broadcast by the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts on campus in downtown Tri-C and is designed to “celebrate the music of love, friendship and admiration.”
“Just like a declaration of love conveys our feelings of togetherness and unity from afar, this Valentine’s Day concert is an opportunity to celebrate togetherness while we are apart, and to comfort and joy through music to those who are alone or isolated on that special day “Farinacci said in a press release.” We are honored to share the stage with the amazing Veronica Swift. She has an incredible style and the unique gifts to tell a musical story that is perfect for love notes. ”
The concert will be performed without a live audience and the staging will be socially distant. Security protocols will also be put in place to protect staff, crew and musicians.
Viewers can choose from a variety of different streaming passes, including single, family, all-access party passes, and special sponsorship for virtual hosts. Love Notes also offers additional interactive elements for the concert experience, including a virtual meet and greet, the option to request song dedications, and specially curated Valentine’s Day party favors.
Viewers also have the opportunity to share their stories of love, friendship and admiration, as well as their song choices.
Singer Evelyn Wright, pianist Jonathan Thomas, bassist Aidan Plank and drummer Jim Rupp are sure to perform alongside Farinacci and Swift.
