Escondido, CA – Enjoy live music under the stars Friday nights in August with Jazz Jam Sessions. This free music series continues to bring top jazz musicians to the Center on Friday, August 17, 2018 in the Lyric Court from 7pm-10pm. Jam with the band or just watch while you enjoy food and drinks from our food truck market and cash bar.
Jazz Jam Sessions continues with the Lorraine Castellanos Quartet making their return to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
Lorraine Castellanos has an intense passion for music, evident in her perceptive phrasing and tone, both as an instrumentalist and vocalist.
With a weighty voice and sensitive execution on the Classical Guitar, Castellanos is gaining a reputation as a dynamic musical presence in her hometown of San Diego, California.
Inspired by the likes of John Williams, Andres Segovia, and Berta Rojas, Castellanos has equal admiration for the great female jazz song stylists who have inspired her to sing selections from the great American Songbook, particularly Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington.
Before Jazz Jam Sessions, come visit our newest exhibition in the Center Museum! The Museum is open to the public and free from 5 to 7pm prior to Food Truck Fridays, Jazz Jam Sessions, and most other center–presented performances.
