Gilbert Castellanos

Founder and Artistic Director

“Raising up the next generation of jazz is really where my passion and heart and soul is. When I was starting out, someone gave me a chance to get on stage and took the time to invest some of their knowledge and experience in me. It’s a big part of my success today, and I’m grateful. Today, I’m giving back, and watching these young adults blossom into amazing musicians is an honor and a gift!”

– Gilbert C. Castellanos
