About the Event

Born in Mexico City, 5 time Grammy Award winner Antonio Sanchez  began playing the drums at age five and performed professionally in his  early teens in Mexico’s rock, jazz and latin scenes.

He pursued a degree in classical piano at the National Conservatory  in Mexico and in 1993 enrolled in Berklee College of Music and New  England Conservatory, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in Jazz  Studies.

Since moving to New York City in 1999, Antonio has become one of the  most sought-after drummers in the international jazz scene. Following  18 years and 9 albums as one of the most revered collaborators with  guitarist/composer Pat Metheny, he also has recorded and performed with  many other most prominent artists like Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Michael  Brecker, Charlie Haden and Toots Thielmans.

In 2014 Sanchez’s popularity soared when he scored Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)  which ended up fetching 4 Academy awards (including best picture) and  for which Antonio won a Grammy award. Additional film/tv projects  include EPIX network's Get Shorty and Hippopotamus among others.

Sanchez currently has close to a dozen recordings as a leader and  solo artist. His recent projects to date include the critically  acclaimed, through-composed epic The Meridian Suite, the star studded album Three Times Three, Grammy nominated Bad Hombre —a sociopolitical electronica & drums exploration, Channels of Energy, an ambitious project with the WDR Big Band with arrangements of his works by Vince Mendoza and the most recent 2019 release, Lines in the Sand  with his band Migration. Here Sanchez turns his political anger into a  moving musical statement of epic compositional proportions as much a  protest against injustice in our current political climate and as a  tribute to every immigrant’s journey.

To date Antonio has been awarded 5 Grammys, nominations for Golden  Globe & Bafta Awards, wins for the World Soundtrack New Artist  Discovery and Best Original Film Score Award, 3 Echo Awards (Germany),  Hollywood Music in Media Award, the Critics’ Choice Movie Award and 3  Modern Drummer’s Jazz Drummer of the Year, among many other wins and  nominations. He has been the featured cover artist for DownBeat, JazzTimes, JAZZIZ, Modern Drummer (twice), Drum!, Musico Pro and Drumhead among others.

Don't miss your chance to hang with this incredible musician!
