Herb Alpert to Be Honored with REDCAT Award
Musician and exec singled out for his artistry and philanthropic work
Trumpeter and music business icon Herb Alpert will be awarded the 2014 REDCAT Award at a March 15 gala to be held at Los Angeles’ REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater). According to a press release, Alpert was chosen because he is “a legendary artist and visionary who brings much the same generosity of spirit and depth of creativity to his philanthropy.” This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts.
Alpert and his wife, singer Lani Hall, will perform at the event.
Last year, Alpert was presented the National Medal of Arts at the White House by President Obama.
