Free Concert @ Crowell: San Marino Jazz Quartet

Thursday, May 9, 2013 7:00 pm

Come enjoy a wonderful evening of live music as the San Marino Jazz Quartet performs be-bop, blues, straight ahead and even some Latin jazz standards at Crowell Public Library. Led by saxophonist Amber Navran of the San Marino Music Center, the San Marino Jazz Ensemble also features fellow Music Center instructor Jeremy Stacey on drums with friends Jeffrey Stein on guitar and Alexis Soto on bass.

Amber Navran earned a Bachelor of Music from the USC’s prestigious Jazz Studies program and has been teaching students of all ages since high school. Jeremy Stacey has been teaching professionally since the age of 19 and when he is not teaching, he works as a composer/arranger for student films, singer/songwriters, high school drumlines, band programs and performs with his own jazz quartet.

Any way you cut it, this will be one swinging night! This event will help kick off what we hope will become a live music series, taking advantage of the great acoustics in the Barth Room. The show is sponsored by the San Marino Music Center and the Crowell Public Library.

All ages are welcome and no reservations are necessary for this free concert. Crowell Library is happy to feature these musicians from the San Marino Music Center, an all purpose music store run by music educators John and Sisilia Axume. The Center offers private and group lessons ranging from piano, guitar, violin, cello, saxophone, vocal, drums and much more. They also offer instrument sales, rentals, music books and music accessories. If you're looking to bring music to your child's life, stop by or visit
