Charlottesville Sister Cities Commission announces premiere of ‘Storie Musicali’
“Storie Musicali,” Italian for “Musical Stories,” will be available for the public to enjoy on YouTube on Sunday, July 10, at 3 p.m.
Brought to life by Charlottesville musicians Wes Swing and Kelley Libby, “Musical Stories” presents a creative and intriguing sound exchange between Charlottesville and Poggio a Caiano, Charlottesville’s Italian Sister City.
After a two-year delay due to the pandemic, Swing and Libby travelled to Poggio a Caiano in March 2022 to record local music and a variety of sounds, in collaboration with Poggio a Caiano citizens.
Doing the same in Charlottesville, they then mixed the two soundscape collections to create a unique piece that can be heard for the first time on YouTube.
The audio piece will be available here.
