This scorching performance brings together the GRAMMY® Award-winning jazz trumpeter and composer Arturo Sandoval with the full sonic force of a symphony orchestra—delivering a fiery fusion of jazz and Latin music. Sandoval will deliver favorites such as "Every Day I Think of You," "Smile," "La Virgen De La Macarena," and "Someone to Watch Over Me."

The show opens with a passion-filled, energetic celebration of Latin American orchestral hits paired with the firework playing of highly acclaimed Costa Rican trumpeter Jose Sibaja and vocalist Mónica Ábrego. In addition to being the lead trumpet of the Boston Brass, Sibaja has recorded with such artists as Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Celia Cruz and has performed on television at the MTV awards, Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman among many others. This high-octane concert is sure to make you want to dance and sing along!
