Panamanian jazz pianist and composer, Danilo Pérez, leads the Global Messengers, musicians from Palestine, Greece, Jordan, and Panama, with varied musical traditions and instrumentation to match. When discussing the healing properties of music, Pérez speaks of “recovering the function of the artist as a tool to redirect humanity in a positive direction.” The Royal Conservatory has commissioned Pérez to write a new piece, which will receive its world premiere at the concert. This music and performance have a rare ability to take an audience to experience the ancient practice of building community through music. Inspiring young players to believe that they can positively affect their communities as they learn their craft, Pérez serves as a UNESCO Artist For Peace, Cultural Ambassador to the Republic of Panama, Founder and Artistic Director of the Panama Jazz Festival, as well as Founder and Artistic Director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute in Boston’s Berklee College of Music.
