Minnesota’s adopted son, Nachito Herrera, is one of the world’s greatest Cuban pianists. Combining Western classical music with traditional Cuban rhythms, Herrera is in high demand in the US and abroad. We are so proud to have him as a featured guest artist this season!

Nachito Herrera, piano
“Hotter than the burning tip of a contraband Cuban cigar. Stronger than a straight shot of Havana rum. As exciting as a World Series games with ‘El Duque’ on the mound. Explosive. Crowd pleasing. Rhythmically intense. Romantic. Dynamic. Jaw-droppingly good.”
– Tom Surrowicz, Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
