Live Music Fridays

October 6: Lorraine Castellanos, Classical Guitar Meets Jazz

Castellanos presents a program interpreting classical guitar masterpieces in various genres from Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods, in addition to Tango and Brazilian forms. Castellanos intertwines selections from the Jazz repertoire. Think classical tango mirrored up with Richard Adler and Jerry Ross’s “Whatever Lola Wants,” from the musical Damn Yankees. How about a traditional Venezuelan waltz compared to Edith Piaf’s rendition of Padam Padam? Jazz meets Classical guitar? It can be done!

Lorraine Castellanos has an intense passion for music, evident in her perceptive phrasing and tone, both as an instrumentalist and as a vocalist. Inspired by the likes of John Williams, Andres Segovia, and Berta Rojas, Castellanos has equal admiration for the song stylists who have inspired her to sing selections from the great American Songbook, particularly Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington.

October 13: Angela Yeung, Chamber Ensembles

As every new quarter verifies, Angela Yeung, Associate Professor of Music at the University of San Diego and director of USD’s Chamber Music Ensembles, brings to Live Music audiences the essence of classical-music ensembles, cobbled in diverse combinations of experience and instrumentation. The musical selections range from the baroque era to contemporary pieces. Due to the nature of the music curriculum at USD, it is not possible to forecast specific instruments, musicians, or selections in time to meet our catalog publication deadlines. We can say with complete assurance, however, that the Live Music Friday offered by Angela Yeung will consistently be one of the most entertaining of each quarter.

October 20: Double Take, Janet Hammer and Nathan Fry

Janet Hammer and Nathan Fry, the duo known as Double Take, have delighted audiences together for 27 years. In “The Best of the Broadway Classics,” they present music of The King and I, West Side Story, Miss Saigon, The Phantom of the Opera, and many more. Fry is brilliant at covering all instruments on his keyboard, making it sound like a full orchestra. Together their voices blend in sonic synchronicity.

Janet Hammer teaches voice at Palomar College and gives private vocal lessons. She is the music director of the Unity Center and leader of The Sweethearts of Swing (Andrews Sisters) and Harmony Express (Doo Wop). She also sings with The Mar Dels, Big Band Jazz Machine, and others.

Nathan Fry is an extraordinary musician, performing all styles. He started his professional career at age 17, playing with local musicians and opening for Manhattan Transfer. He performs with many bands and he is a soloist at local venues.
