Vignola and Raniolo Open Theatre's New Season
Jazz guitarists Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo open the new fall season at the Theatre at Washington, Virginia, on Sunday, September 14 with a concert beginning at 3 p.m.
Their collaboration began more than five years ago -- and they have played together at the Theatre every year since then. Until now, their performances have always closed the season, in December -- but this year the New York musicians decided to forego the snow and blizzard travel conditions which they have encountered here in the past.
Vignola earns fine reviews for his live performances and recordings: "jaw-dropping technique," Washington Post, "one of the brightest . . . stars of the guitar," New York Times; included on Les Paul's "Five Most Admired Guitarists List," in the Wall Street Journal. He has played with Ringo Starr, Madonna, Wynton Marsalis, Lionel Hampton, Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski and the Boston Pops, among many others.
In addition to well over a thousand concerts which he has played with Vignola, the youthful Vinny Raniolo has also performed and recorded with other well known jazz musicians, such as Bucky Pizzaraelli, Tommy Emmanuel and David Grisman. He has toured in more than 14 countries and, with Vignola, has played at some of the world's most prestigious concert halls, including the Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center, and the Liverpool Philharmonic.
Tickets for the concert on Sunday afternoon, September 14, are $25 for adults and $10 for students 18 and under.
