Enjoy this beloved classical piano concert in the lovely CDL Reading Garden

Jacopo and Maddalena Giacopuzzi will return to CDL for this annual event that brings the beauty of classical music out of the concert hall and into the lovely CDL Reading Garden. No longer restricted by expensive tickets, formal attire, and the need to sit perfectly still, this concert has become a beloved annual event for library guests of all ages. Born in Italy to a family of pianists, Jacopo and Maddalena both took an interest to music at an early age. While their style and application are different, they both have achieved numerous international accolades for their incredible talent. Seating will be available in the Reading Garden or bring a blanket and enjoy the concert from the library lawn. 

Jacopo Giacopuzzi

As a soloist and chamber musician, Jacopo has performed recitals at major festival and venues throughout the United States and Europe. Born in Italy to a family of pianists, Jacopo studied in Weimar at the Liszt Hochschule, earned his first Master`s Degree cum laude in Piano performance in 2009 under the guidance of Virginio Pavarana, a Master`s in Sound Design with Mauro Graziani at the Conservatory of Verona in 2012, obtained a Diploma at the International Piano Academy of Imola Incontri col Maestro with Leonid Margarius in 2014. He completed his studies as a graduate in Piano Performance at the University of Southern California (2016) with Professor Kevin Fitz-Gerald.
Known for his multi-talented skills, including photography, video making, and all things digital, he contributes these skills to the festivals he participates in, especially the iPalpiti Festival in Los Angeles and Pianofest in the Hamptons.
Jacopo is a winner of 14 international competitions including the International Piano Competition San Dona` di Piave, Premio Crescendo in Florence, International Liszt Competition in Los Angeles, and the Beverly Hills National Auditions. He has taught at the Conservatory of Verona E.F. Dall Abaco (2012 – 2014), worked as a collaborative pianist at the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels (2010), and has been invited to serve on competition juries and to give presentations and concerts throughout California.
After attending the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara for a number of seasons, Jacopo found himself embraced by this loving community and makes Santa Barbara his home, surfing at sunrise before heading to his piano. Verona is still his home as he continues his international career. His most recent musical engagements take him every summer to iPalpiti festival in Los Angeles, Pianofest in the Hamptons and at the Maui Chamber Music Festival in Hawaii.
