The Festival of Arts’ concerts conclude with a 1 p.m. performance by drummer Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band on Saturday, Aug. 19.

As a band leader and a sideman, Sanchez has banged out a fiery stew of straight-ahead jazz and melodies and rhythms from Latin American sources.

The show is free with festival admission.
