Created by its director, José Miguel Sambartolomé, this ensemble has only been around for eight years. Despite such a young age -and the youth of its members-, it has already performed for very different institutions of the highest level of education. For example, they have performed for the Education Inspectorate of the Territorial Area of Madrid, the General Directorate of Education and Science, and the Presidency of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. Also, when a festival for big bands was organised in Torrejón de Ardoz, the ensemble had the opportunity to collaborate with other formations from that town and from the Alfonso X El Sabio University.
The Arturo Soria Big Band has also played in the Teatros del Canal, and, in several consecutive years, it has performed in the National Music Auditorium, where it has always received the unanimous applause of the audience. Another revealing detail is the fact that it has played for several years now in the Bogui Jazz Club in Madrid, and finally, the concert they put on in Chamartín Station which was broadcast by Telemadrid.
The Big Band is made up of students and alumni of the Arturo Soria Professional Conservatory and on many occasions, it has been able to call on the collaboration of leading figures from the world of Jazz. This is the fourth year they have played in JAZZMADRID.
