Jazz Meets the Classics

The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn is a home away from home for both classical and jazz musicians coming to Santa Fe throughout the year.  This Sunday, guests and locals alike will be treated to a bit of both musical styles when the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra brings 'Jazz Meets the Classics' to the Lensic Performing Arts Center

The program unites the Santa Fe Symphony with Grammy Award Winner Danilo Perez and his Trio for an evening of works by Duke Ellington, Scott Joplin and Perez's own rendition of works by Rachmaninov.  With his unique blend of Pan-American jazz, integrating the music of the Americas, folkloric and world music, Perez is viewed as one of the most important and exciting musicians performing today.  In fact, he was awarded the 2009 Legacy Award from the Smithsonian Latino Center for his contribution to American culture.
