Vibraphonist Featured at Library Show


Tonight, the Live@theLibrary jazz series continues with an 8 p.m. show by Christian Tamburr and his quartet.

According to one of the event organizers, Ruth Belikove, Tamburr is back in the Bay Area after two weeks of performing at the Carlyle Hotel in New York and four weeks in Doha Qatar representing Lincoln Center.

“We are very excited about this distinguished group,” said Belikove.

Tamburr is a multi-instrumentalist, who plays the vibraphone, piano and trapset, as well as world and orchestral percussion.

From 2006 through 2008, he toured with Julio Iglesias as pianist and musical director. In 2008, he joined Cirque du Soliel as a musical director for a new production to be opened in Macao, and from 2010 to 2012, the talented musician was the featured artist in residence at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Christian has performed on vibraphone as a guest artist with Dave Brubeck, as a solo percussionist with Michael Feinstein, and opened for Harry Connick, Jr.

The library will be open (through the back doors) at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19, for guests who want to come early for snacks, wine and socializing.
