The vibrant and stirring sounds of jazz trumpeter and pianist Arturo Sandoval will fill the air at the Shaw Center for the Arts on January 17th. Presented by the River City Jazz Masters, Sandoval’s performance promises to be a dynamic and delightfully entertaining experience. Born in Havana, the Cuban-American performer was originally inspired while studying classical trumpet by such famed fellow jazzmen as Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown, and Charlie Parker. After defecting to the U.S., he developed a passion for jazz, began composing and performing, and has since become one of the most popular and beloved musical talents of our time.

During his career, Sandoval has received 10 Grammys, 6 Billboard Awards, and an Emmy. He has also performed at the Academy Awards, along with the two award shows previously mentioned. He is also the recipient of the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the 2015 Hispanic Heritage Award, and possesses an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from The University of Notre Dame.
