His bands in Cuba received critical praise worldwide, and he was the nation’s outstanding instrumentalist from 1982 to 1990. He defected to the United States with his family in 1990 and was granted U.S. citizenship nine years later. He also is a renowned classical musician, and he has recorded and performed with everyone from Gillespie to Frank Sinatra and the Boston Pops to Justin Timberlake. Now an emeritus professor at Florida International University, Sandoval continues to tour and perform and offer clinics and seminars worldwide.

January 15, 2018: The third annual Walk the Walk Week began with the candlelight prayer service in the Main Building rotunda. The event closed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on campus while kicking off a week of events designed to foster dialogue and reflection on making Notre Dame a more inclusive community.

John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., in a prayer to open the service. Attendees marched with candles in hand to the Sacred Heart statue on Main Quad to conclude the service.
