Monthly, Alfonso Ponticelli's Flamenco & Gypsy-Jazz Showcase features special guest artists on strings, vocals and/or dance. Ponticelli has played gypsy-jazz music for more than a decade, having traveled several times to the annual Django Reinhardt festival in France. He introduced gypsy-jazz to Chicago in the 1990s. A multi-instrumentalist, he won the 1994 U.S. National Mountain Dulcimer Championship & plays both banjo and guitar with the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra. He's also a gypsy flamenco guitarist, having been to Cordoba, Spain, to study with the great flamenco guitarist, Vincente Amigo.
