The Berklee Global Jazz Institute (BGJI) is proud to present a series of concerts featuring some of world's most talented emerging artists. This program features the music of Antonio Sanchez.

Three time Grammy Award-winner Antonio Sanchez is considered by many critics and musicians to be one of the most prominent drummers of his generation. Born in Mexico City, he started playing drums at the age of 5 and began performing professionally early in his teens. He pursued a degree in classical piano at the National Conservatory in Mexico and in 1993 he moved to Boston to enroll at Berklee College of Music.

Since his move to New York City, Sanchez has become one of the most sought after drummers in the international jazz scene. He has performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in jazz including Pat Metheny (he's a member of the Pat Metheny Group and the Pat Metheny Trio with Christian McBride), Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, and Toots Thielmans.

The Berklee Global Jazz Institute is a performance program designed to foster creativity and musicianship through various musical disciplines, with pianist and composer Danilo Pérez as its artistic director. The BGJI provides a comprehensive, contemporary music environment where students are given opportunities to explore their creativity to the highest level, advance the power of music as a tool for the betterment of society, and connect musical creative thinking with the natural environment.
