Two-time Grammy nominee Hector Martignon will return to the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill on Friday, September 7 — but this time, he has the Foreign Affair Quartet in tow.

“I’m delighted to welcome Hector Martignon back to the Parrish with another world class concert on the Terrace,” Corinne Erni, senior curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects, said in a press release. “As a master in fusing traditional Latin American tunes, European classical music and Afro-Cuban jazz, he will bring music to quietly enjoy or dance to.”

Colombian-born and New York-based Martignon has composed, orchestrated, produced, performed and recorded music in a wide spectrum of genres — from classical and crossover, to jazz and world music, to rock and pop. He has worked on scores for three Broadway musicals, five feature films, and has participated on more than 100 recordings, not to mention the five albums of his own.

The performance starts at 6 p.m. Admission is $12 and free for members, children and students. All are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets to listen from the Mildred C. Brinn Terrace or Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Foundation Event Lawn. For more information, call (631) 283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
