San Diego Jazz Series Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Concerts to feature Charlap-Rosnes, Jeff Ballard Trio, others

Jazz at the Athenaeum, a performance series that takes place at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in the La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, Calif. , is celebrating its 25th anniversary this summer. The series began in 1989 with concerts by Harry Pickens and Mike Wofford and in 1996 began bringing in nationally known jazz artists. In 2001 the program expanded again, adding the Athenaeum Jazz at the Studio series at the School of the Arts Studio in University Heights.
