Continuing the tradition of cross-cultural exploration pioneered by his famous bandleader father (the late “Chico” O’Farrill), modern Afro-Cuban jazz master Arturo O’Farrill is on a mission to strengthen the bridge of musical solidarity spanning across Cuba, the U.S. and his native Mexico. Join us for what is sure to be the hottest Cubo-Mex bebop jam ever heard at Copley Symphony Hall!

Come early for a pre-concert performance presented onstage at 7pm by students from the Young Lions Jazz Conservatory.

 *The San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear in this concert.
