For the past few months, I’ve contributed some PR/marketing work to Terra Sounds School of Arts and Music in Northbrook, Illinois. Below is my press release published by Kontinent (Media group specializing in news and press releases for the Russian-American community) about Terra Sound’s musical event, JukeBox Groove, which featured a concert-presentation of the works of great Jewish composers at Chicago City Winery. Check out the published article here or read on below:
From the all-favorite «Sing-Sing-Sing» to «Bay mir Bistu Sheyn,» Aleks Di Roma will present the harvest of the Tikkun Fellowship Grant and his own original compositions.
JukeBox Groove, a Tribute to Great Jewish Composers with a Concert-Presentation at the Chicago City Winery
For Immediate Release:
In just under a month, join the Terra Sounds team of talented musicians as they perform the all-favorite works of great Jewish composers, such as Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Benny Goodman and others who inspired the birth of a new Jewish tune, to be presented at the Chicago City Winery on June 1 at 2pm. Guitarist Aleks Di Roma, Co-Founder of Terra Sounds Scohol of Music and Arts, will open the concert with his original works, special guests, and inspiring arrangements. Aleks is a passionate music instructor, producer and a vibrant performing artist. He has been featured in both international and national events, recording projects, workshops, and radio stations.
“I’ve always loved introducing my students to a wide range of music, including the traditional Jewish works that really shaped me as a musician, “George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein’s music are now well-known melodies, though the instrumentation, rhythm, and feel of these works have been rearranged to a variety of musical genres. These works have naturally influenced modern-day music, and will continue to influence and inspire future generations.”
The Chicago City Winery is a one-of-a-kind venue that blends incredible music with excellent wine and culinary delights in a unique city setting. All ages are welcome to attend, with adults 21+ to enjoy the wine country experience in the middle of a large city.
