Join the Library for the 2022 Summer Festival Jazz Concerts. Sponsored by the Friends of the Coronado Library and Hotel Del Coronado, concerts will take place every other Friday from June 3-August 26. Doors will open 15 minutes prior to each performance.

Kicking off our series is the Rob Thorsen Jazz Quartet on Friday, June 3. The Quartet will present an afternoon concert of Jazz, Latin and original music. Led by San Diego bassist, composer and educator Rob Thorsen, this concert will showcase the talents of this award winning ensemble. Rob found his true calling with the upright bass after playing guitar, flute, saxophone and tuba growing up. “When I began playing upright bass, the fact that I felt the sound as much as heard it had a profound effect on me. I was hooked for life.”

Joining him will be Alexander Anderson, a forward-thinking pianist, keyboardist, composer, and arranger with a bent toward mixing '70s- influenced jazz and fusion with contemporary hip-hop and R&B.

16 year old saxophonist Nick Caldwell is a multiple National Young Arts award winner on both tenor and alto saxophone. He recently played at the Monterey Jazz Festival with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra and performed in New York with bassist Russell Hall. He has been performing professionally since the age of 11.

Drummer Tyler Kreutel graduated from the San Diego School for Creative and Performing Arts in 2012 and went on to receive his Bachelors degree in music at CSU Long Beach. He performs regularly with Gilbert Castellanos, Joshua White, Charles McPherson, Marshall Hawkins and others.
