“Danilo Pérez is a man with some serious jazz cred… The Panamanian pianist got his start playing with Dizzy Gillespie, and continued with Wayne Shorter… As a composer and bandleader himself, he’s practically peerless.”
—National Public Radio

The “effortlessly hip” (Guardian), Grammy-winning jazz pianist and UNESCO Artist for Peace Danilo Pérez unites his twin passions of music and humanitarianism in this international sextet. The Panamanian-born Pérez and his bandmates—hailing from Palestine, Greece, and Jordan—contribute their respective cultural learnings and personal experiences with the goal of building community through music.

It is a great honor for the Foundation to support the arts in Washington through Washington Performing Arts. The concert programming Washington Performing Arts presents is truly world class and so fitting for a city like ours. Washington Performing Arts for so many years now has put on some really marvelous performances for all of us to enjoy and my hope is that they will continue with the work they are doing for years to come.
