Dominick Farinacci: “Short Stories”

Trumpeter Dominick Farinacci has been recently credited the title Global Ambassador to Jazz at Lincoln Center by Wynton Marsalis, working to further integrate jazz into communities around the world. He graduated from The Juilliard School in 2005 launching his career in Japan with a prolific run of eight albums, later releasing two more globally, touring with his band around the world. Music icon Quincy Jones says of Dominick’s accomplishments “This kid is 360 degrees!” and he is a recipient of the International New Star Award.

Dominick has been successful in his personal endeavors on bringing the art of jazz into the community. He is a featured performer for the Cleveland Clinic in both Ohio and Abu Dhabi, taking part in the first jazz performance for patients in Abu Dhabi in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic and the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation. For Dominick, music and health go hand in hand, most recently organizing panel discussions around patient-doctor communication through music with Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar. He has also been invited by TED MED to do a TED talk September 2014 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Dominick has been a leading advocate in music education development, most recently featured at the 2014 Community College Association of America in D.C. He served as Music Consultant to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, and initially launched a music education program at the Tommy LiPuma Center for the Arts in Cleveland, Ohio, which brought together 30+ international artists involving over 3,000 students. This successful initiative has since expanded to the GCC, in schools such as Weill Cornell Medical College, Qatar Music Academy, the American School of Doha among others.

Direct from New York City after an engagement at the renowned Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, the international recording artist & trumpet sensation brings all-star band with special guests from around the world for a swingin’ return to the Rubber City! Featuring Sullivan Fortner, Jonathan Michel, Quincy Phillips, Jamey Haddad, Michael Ward Bergeman.
