Gilbert Castellanos Presents: The Young Lions Series at Panama 66
In December of 2013, jazz trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos created the Young Lions Series with the intent to mentor young musicians and provide them with unique opportunities to perform in public venues. Middle and high school students are encouraged to prepare and program a concert, engage with the audience, grow in confidence and discipline, and to respect the music. Since the series’ inception, over 200 musicians have participated. The Young Lions Series performances are every Wednesday from 6-8pm at Panama 66 at the San Diego Museum of Art.
Catch The Young Lions at Panama 66, located in Balboa Park in the Art Museum Sculpture Garden. The show is free and delicious food and drink are available to purchase.
You can stay for the Jam Session, hosted by Gilbert Castellanos, that runs 8:30 - 11pm every Wednesday.
