2016 Festival Begins








Arturo Sandoval

A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval is one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer.  He is one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, and has been seen by millions at the Oscars performing with Celine Dion, at the Grammy Awards as a leader and at the Billboard Awards.  Sandoval has been awarded nine Grammy Awards, and nominated 19 times; he has also received six Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award, the latter for his composing work on the entire underscore of the HBO movie based on his life, “For Love or Country” starring Andy Garcia.  Soon to be released is a new book chronicling his relationship with Dizzy Gillespie entitled The Man That Changed My Life, whose explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock and traditional Cuban music caused a sensation throughout the entertainment world.

Arturo Sandoval will perform”Dear Diz!” featuring music from his 2013 multiple Grammy winning album Big Band tribute to Dizzy Gillespie! with special guest Monica Mancini and featuring the Henry Mancini Institue Orchestra on March 8.
