• Paquito D'Rivera
    Professional Training Workshop

    During a six-day Latin Jazz Workshop, participants had the opportunity to learn music directly from Grammy Award winner Paquito D’Rivera along with special guest coaches—percussionist Pernell Saturnino, bassist Oscar Stagnaro, drummer Mark Walker, pianist Alon Yavnai, and trumpeter-trombonist Diego Urcola. Participants worked in private coaching sessions, in small ensembles, and as a big band on arrangements representing different Latin traditions in preparation for a Zankel Hall performance on Monday, March 19, 2007 at 7:30 PM.
