President's Cultural Series: Arturo Sandoval

Tickets are available beginning Jan. 23, 2017, for the Feb. 7 concert presented by jazz trumpeter, pianist, and composer Arturo Sandoval and band. The concert, part of the Presidential Cultural Series, begins at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

A protégé of jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval, who was born in Cuba, has evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn, as well as a renowned classical artist. He was a founding member of the Grammy Award-winning group Irakere, whose explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock, and traditional Cuban music caused a sensation throughout the entertainment world.

Sandoval is the recipient of multiple Grammy, Billboard, and Emmy awards. He is a 2013 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
