Santa Fe Prep and AMP Concerts present
Hailed by The New York Times as “…a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus,” Grammy-nominated jazz musician Raul Midón returns to New Mexico to celebrate his New Mexican roots at a benefit event for his alma mater’s tuition assistance program for the under resourced at Santa Fe Prep and Breakthrough Santa Fe. Come join this exceptional opportunity as we honor retiring Head of School Jim Leonard’s 21 years of leadership at Prep.
Along with releasing 10 studio albums as a solo artist, Raul Midón – dubbed “an eclectic adventurist” by People magazine – has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, along with contributing to recordings by Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s She Hate Me. A rapt critic for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper wrote: “Midón has a lovely voice, a beautifully controlled tenor that can express anything from tenderness to passion… And the guy can play. His strumming has a flamenco flourish, but after a while, you realize he can do every kind of accompaniment he needs on acoustic guitar.” Please join us for this wonderful evening of jazz!
