Stefano Cazzaniga, Executive VP of Music for Love : I met Fabrizio over 20 years ago, when I had the opportunity to play with him both in Italy and in Cuba, where Fabrizio made it possible to our band to be heard and invited to perform at the Havana Jazz Festival by the great Chucho Valdes, who felt in love with his trumpet. Since then he became the wonderful musician we all know, while I lost my connection with him until last year, when Franco convinced me to call him again to play in support of our charity, Music for Love, in a memorable concert in Prato, Italy. Since then Fabrizio is on our side helping disadvantaged children around the world. Today it’s a great pleasure and a privilege to welcome such an amazing musician, an extraordinary man and a good old friend in our beloved City of Greensboro to support our local community.
Franco Nannucci, Founder and President of Music for Love : we are a new and small organization but very active in fundraising to support educational projects in our local community as well as educational & health care projects in several countries in Africa. We envision music as a vehicle for fundraising, music as voice of hope, music to get people together to help children all around the world, the new generations, our future. Fabrizio Bosso embraced the project of Music for Love since day 1, calling several of his friend musicians to perform in our very first event o May 27th 2017 in Prato Italy, it was a magical and emotional evening that helped us to raise well over $ 100.000
