Bardavon Gala 2016:

An Evening with SANTANA!

Sunday, April 10 at 7pm at the Bardavon

Santana’s performances are always delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, and the sound of this 10-time Grammy-winner is one of the world’s best-known musical signatures. For more than four decades—since his earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion band in San Francisco—Carlos Santana has been the visionary iconic force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural, and geographical boundaries. Santana is playing Madison Square Garden three days after the Bardavon show, so this is a rare chance to see him in one of the most intimate venues he’s played in his career!

Funds raised by the Bardavon Gala help underwrite many programs that cannot support themselves — school residencies that bring artists and musicians to local schools, ambitious symphony concerts, special senior citizen events, and more.
