School of Music to welcome Arturo Sandoval and the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet

The 2013-14 academic year will allow two School of Music ensembles to shine that usually don’t get the limelight: the Latin Jazz Ensemble and the Guitar Ensemble.

In recent years, Yo-Yo Ma came to perform with the College Symphony, Dawn Upshaw came to work with vocalists, Richard Goode with the pianists and Dan Welcher with the composers. Working with artists such as these raises the bar of students’ expectations, standards and artistry.

Arturo Sandoval is a Cuban-born American who has carried the music of his youth into an award-winning career that has spanned the globe. He has recorded with his own bands, with orchestras, and played with the greats: Paquito D’Rivera, Frank Sinatra, Woody Herman, Celine Dion, Tito Puente, Stan Getz and even Justin Timberlake.

He will be performing with the Latin Jazz Ensemble and as part of a professional combo of faculty and guests on Nov. 11.

The event is made possible thanks to the generous support of Hodgson Russ LLP.

The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet is renowned for its ability to perform a diverse body of music: classical, flamenco, rock and bluegrass. The quartet will present a virtuosic, entertaining concert, and for one number, Shingo Fujii’s, “Shiki” (Seasons of Japan), they will be accompanied by the Fredonia Guitar Studio, creating an overwhelming sound of harmony and beauty inspired by Japanese folk songs and dedicated to the victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Look for this event on April 4, 2014.
