Presented in cooperation with MDC Kendall Campus’ long-running Jazz Under the Stars concert series, Grammy Award-winning pianist, composer and educator Arturo O’Farrill will take us to new heights in Latin jazz.  Together O’Farrill, his musicians and top Miami players will create an exciting big band celebrating the legacy of Arturo’s father, Chico O’Farrill with a vibrant program that spans everything from Latin jazz standards to Jewish classics in Afro-Latin big band form! These incredible musicians will make even the most dizzyingly complex pieces feel effortless and joyful, and the best dance tunes feel wonderfully artful.  Join us for a fascinating night of musical artistry and dancing under the stars.
