Gil is looking forward to performing for the San Diego Symphony's annual outdoor summer concert series. There will be many friends from San Diego attending so book your tickets starting April 8. These concerts are performed on a stage constructed each year at the beautiful Embarcadero Marina Park South, on San Diego Bay right behind the San Diego Convention Center. The setting is nothing short of inspirational and the scenery breathtaking. The Principal Summer Pops conductor is Matthew Garbutt and together with the San Miguel Five they will be performing classical Spanish, gorgeous Mexican and American ballads, great movie music and of course gypsy jazz. The fireworks on the stage will be followed by fireworks in the air.
It's been an exciting time this March performing in Minnesota and Dallas. What a thrilling time it was to play with Doc and his Big Band Orchestra. The program featured big band classics by Ellington, Basie as well as pop and jazz ballads.
