With a fabulous new location, the jazz festival continues to spotlight top professional artists each year that light up the outdoor stage with hot summer jazz.

The quintet has toured and performed at jazz festivals and clubs around the world.
Pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill is the winner of seven Grammy Awards. Born in Mexico, O’Farrill grew up in New York City, and began his professional career with jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Bowie, Wynton Marsalis, Harry Belafonte (where he served a music director), and other jazz luminaries.
In 2007, he founded the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance, education, and preservation of Afro Latin music.
