Nestor Torres performs FREE in Collins Park
February 24 from 4-7 PM: Celebrate Mardi Gras with jazz flautist Nestor Torres. Standing on the shoulders of flute giants from worlds as diverse as Rampal & Galway in Classical Music; Richard Egues’ Cuban Charanga style; rocker Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull; Herbie Mann and – most influential of all Hubert Laws as pioneers of Jazz Flute, Latin Grammy Award winning Nestor Torres’ rhythmic and mellifluous flute sound remains apart in a class all by itself. His 14 recordings as a soloist, four Latin Grammy nominations, one Latin Grammy Award, collaborations with diverse artists such as Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mathews, Herbie Hancock, Tito Puente, Michael Camilo, Paquito D’ Rivera and Arturo Sandoval, as well as performances with the Cleveland, Singapore, and New World Symphony Orchestras, among many others, are testament to the remarkable journey of an Artist who continues to grow and enrich the lives of those who experience his talents.
Produced by Global Arts Project, Inc. and the Collind Park Neighborhood Association. Collins Park is located at 2100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, next to the Bass Museum. Each show will open with a set by students of Dr. Ed Calle. Snacks and drinks will be available.
