Thank you writer Robert Bush for your great feature in this week’s San Diego Reader about Young Lions Jazz Conservatory! Wonderful article with interviews with Artistic Director Gilbert Castellanos and several of our students.
J&J Realty contributed $1,000 and we raised an additional $1,100.00 from generous community members. The total amount of $2,100 will cover tuition and private instruction for a young musician who would otherwise be unable to join YLJC.
This month power couple Rob Thorsen (YLJC Instructor) and Steph Johnson appear on the cover of San Diego Troubadour. They discuss their home, their life together as working musicians, their musical up-bringing, and their work with the homeless choir. A truly inspiring read!
We are now accepting placement audition videos for the Young Lions Jazz Conservatory second semester. Artistic Director Gilbert Castellanos will use these videos to place students in the correct level ensemble. Audition videos are due Dec. 31, 2017.
