San Bernardino Valley College’s landmark Auditorium is reopening this August after being closed for a complete remodel and renovation the past 12 months. On Thursday, August 28th, the greater San Bernardino community is invited to a FREE jazz concert featuring renowned flautist Galen Abdur-Razzaq, to formally celebrate the grand reopening. The concert starts at 5:00 p.m. and goes until 6:45.
Deanne Rabon, a program coordinator/counselor and assistant professor who is a member of the college’s Arts, Lectures and Diversity Committee, says, “Galen is an excellent musician and performer, who combines music and the history of music into one, engaging and entertaining show. We were very fortunate to get him for this concert, and really look forward to providing SBVC students and the public with this opportunity to come and enjoy a live jazz performance. Admission is free.”
Ms. Rabon points out that on that same day, from 11:00 to 11:50 a.m. in Library Viewing Room, Galen will conduct a free lecture on “Women in Jazz.”
Free concert tickets will be available at the door or can be procured in advance by calling the college at 909-384-4433. Those interested in getting blocks of tickets for group seating should call the same number and ask for Ms. Deanne Rabon.
