Special IDS Center piano performance by Nachito Herrera

Special IDS Center piano performance by Nachito Herrera

Join us outside IDS Center along Nicollet during Aquatennial for a special performance by Nachito Herrera in partnership with Pianos on Parade presented by PNC Bank! Recognized as a young genius, Ignacio “Nachito” Herrera stunned Cuban audiences at the age of 12, performing Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 2 with the Havana Symphony Orchestra. Famed Cuban pianist and Buena Vista Social Club member, Ruben Gonzalez invited the 16-year-old Nachito to join him on stage and inspired the teenager to study the traditional rhythms of Cuba. Herrera’s classical grounding, natural abilities, and enthusiasm for his subject paid off. In addition, Herrera has studied with Cuban masters; Chucho Valdes, Ruben Gonzalez & Frank Fernandez.

Along with this special performance, located steps away from Downtown Thursdays’ Nicollet Farmers Market and Makers Market, enjoy great activities outside and inside IDS Center.
