Percussionist, composer, educator, and multi-Grammy Award nominee Bobby Sanabria has been a staple of the Latin jazz community for over 30 years. On this special weekend during Puerto Rican heritage month, we celebrate Sanabria’s birthday with some great music! A recipient of countless awards and grants, Sanabria has played with such legends as Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, and Mario Bauza, and he has been featured on numerous film soundtracks. Tonight, Sanabria will be leading the big band from his recent album, Multiverse, which was nominated for two Grammy Awards. The performance will feature new takes on the music from Leonard Bernstein’s timeless Broadway masterpiece, West Side Story, which fused progressive big band jazz, lyric opera, modern dance, and Latin rhythms into a revolutionary musical experience that Sanabria will bring to life in a brand new fashion. Reserve a seat, but be prepared to move!
