Thierry Arpino Quartet
Aug 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Thierry ArpinoBorn in Paris, Thierry Arpino stands atop a family drumming lineage which spans four generations. His father introduced him to the drums at age of three. Thierry also studied classical percussion, piano and harmony. He is a graduate of St. Maur National Music Academy in France and continued his musical education at Berklee College Of Music in Boston where he was invited to study with big band master Herb Pomeroy and master drums teacher Bob Kaufman.

Thierry’s career has been punctuated by stints with such notables as Joe Beck, Larry Coryell, Bill Evans and Jean-Luc Ponty. Although much can be said of Thierry Arpino’s virtuosity, what remains unqualifiable and unquantifiable is the sheer joy he displays in each and every performance.
