Our award-winning Jazz Ensemble, directed by Ron Rudkin, will perform a rousing repertoire showcasing the intersection of Latin American
culture and jazz music.
The performance will feature the group’s most talented jazz soloists and highlight
several sections of the band. Guest artists Luis Marin (piano) and Jean Carlos Camuñas
(percussion) will join the ensemble on Ray Santos’ traditional Latin Big Band piece
“Sunny Ray” and Jazz standard “Afro Blue,” among others. “Seguire Mi Viaje,” a romantic
ballad composed by master Mexican composer Alvaro Carrillo, will feature Venezuelan
vocalist Laura (Gonzqui) Gonzalez.
