Nevada Youth Alliance presents Rick DellaRatta’s Jazz For Peace Benefit Concert
“DellaRatta…..demonstrating a talent for composing, improvising and arranging….that recalled Thelonius Monk’s flair for refreshing familiar chord progressions with harmonic twists…..an imaginative reworking that moved from the sublime to swinging and back again.”
Rick DellaRatta and Jazz for Peace is the only musical act performing today who has achieved an amazing total of FIVE Unprecedented Achievements in Jazz (www.ljjm.biz), starting from their united nations event uniting more world leaders than both Woodstock and Live Aid combined to an Unprecedented musical presentation of mainstream, Latin and Brazilian Jazz that is now considered worldwide to be one of the most significant cultural events of our time! The main attraction with Rick starts at 8:00pm.
Preceding the main attraction starting 6:30pm at The Smith Center’s outside Courtyard will be an Honorary VIP Guest Mixer. The mixer will offer a meet and greet with Rick and other celebrities, a silent arts auction, the serving of delectable hors d’oervures and the showcasing of local musical greats. The Honorary VIP Hostess/Celebrity for this event is Las Vegas’s “Golden Voice” Genevieve. Thanks to Graficandus Art Studio, Sandy Kastel’s Women In Music & Art (WIMA), GES, Amerigroup, Nevada’s Art Council and the National Endowment of the Arts.
