Get swept away by the sounds of summer at Faena Miami Beach as Faena Theater celebrates its second annual Summer Jazz Series.
Hosted by GRAMMY nominee and legendary jazz percussionist Sammy Figueroa and curated by GRAMMY-nominated produc-er Rachel Faro in partnership with WDNA 88.9 FM Radio, this five-month music series continues with a stirring performance by five-time GRAMMY nominated jazz pianist Christian Sands on June 20th. Influenced by a range of musical styles, from Afro-Cuban rhythms to jazz and dirty blues, Sands will showcase works from his debut album, Reach, and tell his personal story of self-discovery. Later this season, guests can enjoy a stunning performance by world-renowned percussionist and festival host Sammy Figueroa as he takes the stage together with Mirella Costa, a rising Brazilian jazz vocalist. Then, prepare to be amazed by 17-year-old Matthew Whitaker, a blind jazz piano prodigy who is celebrated worldwide for his awe-inspiring performances at renowned venues like Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Rounding out the festival is GRAMMY-nominated jazz vocalist, Jazzmeia Horn, whose soulful sound will light up the stage as the summer winds down.
