Living legend and multiple Grammy Award winner, Paquito D’Rivera, returns to Koerner Hall. On this occasion, he is joined by the Harlem Quartet, praised for its “panache” by The New York Times and for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent,” by the Cincinnati Enquirer. Their program will include classical chamber music as well as Latin jazz and improvisations.
