The Parrish Art Museum is presenting outdoor music with two-time Grammy nominee Hector Martignon on Friday, September 7, 6 pm. Martignon returns to the Parrish with a stellar lineup from the Foreign Affair Quartet including Christos Rafalides (vibes), Oscar Stagnaro (bass), and Samuel Torres (percussion). The quartet has performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s annual “The Next Wave” festival and at leading jazz venues in New York (including Joe’s Pub/The Public Theater) as well as nationally, and worldwide.

“I’m delighted to welcome Hector Martignon back to the Parrish with another world class concert on the Terrace,” says Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects. “As a master in fusing  traditional Latin American tunes, European classical music, and Afro-Cuban jazz he will bring music to quietly enjoy or dance to.”

Colombian-born and New York-based,  Martignon has composed, orchestrated, produced, performed, and recorded music in a wide spectrum of genres, from classical and crossover, to jazz and world music, to rock and pop. He worked on scores for three Broadway musicals and five feature films, and arranged and performed segments of the score of Ang Lee’s Academy Award-nominated film Eat, Drink, Man, Woman.  Martignon, who has participated in more than 100 recordings, has released five CDs as soloist and two as co-leader. Both of his most recent CDs, Refugee, 2008, and Second Chance, 2010, were nominated for Grammy Awards.

Special drinks and menu items will be available for purchase from the Golden Pear Café. Table Seating is reserved for Cafe patrons; guests may also bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy the live music from the Mildred C. Brinn Terrace or Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Foundation Event Lawn. All summer concerts are free with Museum admission and take place rain or shine

Parrish Art Museum


Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island’s East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in residence.  The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.
