Jazz at the Library

     

Wednesday April 8 brought the Gilbert Castellanos Quintet to the Rancho Bernardo Library. A great Afro-Cuban selection of standards and new compositions delighted the crowd there.

The Quintet is Gilbert Castellanos – Trumpet, Irving Flores – Piano, Rob Thorsen – Bass, Tommy Aros – Congas, and Ryan Shaw – Drums, gifted musicians all.

Castellanos is a unique artist, trained as a classical musician yet a superb jazz player. He is the premier jazz player in the San Diego area and is constantly working in concerts, clubs and tours.

Our Library does much more than simply lend books. It sponsors programs for children and seniors, holds concerts, conducts art exhibits and film showings, sponsors clubs in local schools, conducts book readings and hosts authors and a lot more.

The Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to supporting these programs and activities at the Rancho Bernardo Branch of the San Diego Public Library.

These programs include Yoga for children and adults, reading for children, eReader clinics, Zumba classes, Internet classes and much, much else.

We raise money for Library activities, programs and materials.

We sponsor children's programs and concerts in the Library.

Never lend books – nobody ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are those which people have lent me.
