Free Concert: a Jazz Quartet

The Friends of Crowell Library and
San Marino Music Center present A Jazz Quartet
Thursday, June 12, 7:00 p.m.

The third installment of the Crowell music series sponsored by the San Marino Music Center and the Friends of Crowell Library will feature a quartet led by music instructors AMBER NAVRAN (alto saxophone, vocals), JASON GOLDAY (guitar), and VICTOR CARRACEDO (drums). The musicians, all from the San Marino Music Center, will be performing “straight ahead” jazz, including many different styles such as bop, swing, Bossa, Latin as well as some pop vocal standards. In that mix, you’ll likely hear tunes from such artists as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Dorham, Miles Davis and many others. This free concert will take place in the Library’s Barth Community Room, and all ages welcome. No reservations are necessary.

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. Jason Golday studied Jazz and Classical Guitar at Indiana University in Bloomington, receiving his BM in Performance. He received his MFA in Jazz Guitar Performance from California Institute of the Arts. Jason has over fifteen years of public and private teaching experience and also composes music for commercials, short films and silent films. Victor A Carrracedo studied at L'AULA de Jazz de Barcelona under the mentorship of Quim Sole, where he graduated with honors in 2011. Victor graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Master of Music degree from Berklee. As an instructor, Victor stresses fundamentals such as technique and sight reading. His ultimate goal is to share his knowledge about drums with students and seeing them grow as musicians.
