Congratulations Young Lions Jazz Conservatory Artistic Director Gilbert Castellanos on your nomination for “Artist of the Year” from the San Diego Music Awards!

We ask all our Young Lions family to vote for Gilbert at:


You can vote once a day.

Gilbert actually won “Artist of the Year” in 2013, the same year he also won Album of the Year and Best Jazz Artist. BUT….he didn’t think he’d win and left early for a gig! Wouldn’t it be great if he won it again, and could actually be present at the awards show to receive it?

Good luck, Gilbert!
