Event Details

Join the Library for the 2022 Summer Festival Jazz Concerts. Sponsored by the Friends of the Coronado Library and Hotel Del Coronado, concerts will take place every other Friday from June 3-August 26. Doors will open 15 minutes prior to each performance.

Kicking off our series is the Rob Thorsen Jazz Quartet on Friday, June 3. The Quartet will present an afternoon concert of Jazz, Latin and original music. Led by San Diego bassist, composer and educator Rob Thorsen, this concert will showcase the talents of this award winning ensemble. Rob found his true calling with the upright bass after playing guitar, flute, saxophone and tuba growing up. “When I began playing upright bass, the fact that I felt the sound as much as heard it had a profound effect on me. I was hooked for life.”

Joining him will be Alexander Anderson, a forward-thinking pianist, keyboardist, composer, and arranger with a bent toward mixing '70s- influenced jazz and fusion with contemporary hip-hop and R&B.

With nearly 100 recording and film credits, Guadalajara-born San Diego-based musician Gilbert Castellanos has earned international recognition as a composer, curator, educator, arranger and top-call jazz trumpeter. Named as one of the most innovative jazz trumpeters in DownBeat Magazine’s “25 for The Future,” Castellanos has spent over 30 years touring the globe and recording both as a solo artist and with the most renowned names in the industry – Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Horace Silver, Christian McBride, Lewis Nash, Oscar Hernandez, Les McCann, Diana Krall, Willie Nelson, Michael Buble, Natalie Cole and The Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, to name a few

Drummer Tyler Kreutel graduated from the San Diego School for Creative and Performing Arts in 2012 and went on to receive his Bachelors degree in music at CSU Long Beach. He performs regularly with Gilbert Castellanos, Joshua White, Charles McPherson, Marshall Hawkins and others.
