While living in his native Cuba, Arturo Sandoval was influenced by jazz musicians Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, and Dizzy Gillespie. In 1977 he met Gillespie, who became his friend and mentor and helped him defect from Cuba while on tour with the United Nations Orchestra. Sandoval became an American naturalized citizen in 1998. His life was the subject of the film For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story (2000) starring Andy García. Sandoval has won 4 Grammy Awards, Billboard Awards and one Emmy Award. On November 20, 2013, President Barack Obama presented Sandoval with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Mr. Sandoval has performed the National Anthem many times and last year submitted a video for the annual Taps Across America, National Moment of Remembrance held every year on Memorial Day. He is a true American patriot, spreading his music across the United States and beyond.
We are honored to have Mr. Sandoval sound Taps in memory of all who have served in the armed forces of the United States, and those who perished in the ‘war that changed the world.’ These 4.7 million Americans who served in WWI and the 116,516 who made the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Every day at 5pm without fail, Taps sounds at the National WWI Memorial making it the only memorial in the United States where a live bugler sounds Taps on a daily basis.
The National WWI Memorial is located on Pennsylvania Ave between 14th and 15th Streets NW.
