Postponed from 7th April 2021.
Internationally renowned for his masterful performances in a variety of musical styles, world class violinist Omar Puente is nothing short of a true virtuoso. After establishing himself as an accomplished musician on his native Cuban soil, Omar moved to England in 1997.
Having maintained close links with traditional Cuban music, classical genres and jazz, his most recent album ‘Best Foot Forward’, is rich with energy, colour, creative arrangements and originality.
Throughout his career Omar has supported and shared the stage with a whole host of other stars; Tito Puente, John Williams, Nigel Kennedy, Courtney Pine and Wynton Marsalis to name a few.
Omar’s many accolades include The Lukas Award for The Classical, Jazz or Folk Act of the Year 2018; a top 10 placement for Songline Magazine's Album of the Year; and a nomination for Best Jazz Soloist in the 21st International CubaDisco Fair 2017.
"Omar Puente’s contribution to 20th and 21st century violin playing has now become legendary. His generous nature, his commitment to good music, his enjoyment of life and his respect for his colleagues are all characteristics which make him a true violin great" - Nigel Kennedy
