A Trumpet Blast
This photo was taken at a performance by L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, which followed the US premiere of Agostino Ferrente’s documentary chronicling the orchestra’s formation and progression as a musical group.
L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio began as a group of musicians from disparate backgrounds coming together in a community with no defined nationality to build upon each other’s love of music. Nearly all of the musicians being immigrants new to the Italian tongue, their only form of communication was through the common language of music. The language barrier brings up challenges, as well as moments of hilarity, to their efforts toward developing a musical ensemble representative of all the unique perspectives contributing to compositions they perform.
You can listen to their music here.
