Centro d'Arte

“Centro d’Arte degli Studenti dell’Università di Padova” was founded in 1945.

The name translates as “University of Padua Students' Center for the Arts”, and originally it was a student association supported by the University of Padua, the second-oldest in Italy (founded in 1222) and the world's fifth-oldest university.

Since 1946, Centro d’Arte has been organizing a concert series, first focused on Chamber Music, and then almost exclusively dedicated to Jazz and New Music. In the '50s and '60s Centro d’Arte organized concerts featuring jazz masters like Lennie Tristano, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk as well as important contemporary music composers and performers like David Tudor and Karlheinz Stockhausen.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
