Sway to the island rhythms as the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra transports you to paradise on the Caribbean shores. Imagine a warm island breeze beneath the palm trees with sounds of steel pans floating by. This illustrious jazz orchestra is joined by featured steel pan virtuoso Victor Provost, a member of the Grammy Award-winning Afro Bop Alliance, and his ensemble for a program of Caribbean music. Washington City Paper’s “Jazz Percussionist of the Year” for the past five years, Provost has performed alongside Cuban jazz legend Paquito D’Rivera and his Panamericana Orchestra and was named the Art Ambassador to his home of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Don’t miss this incredible night of music filled with rhythmic island soul!
