The Museum of Making Music invites you to our virtual backstage with Chris Prescott, Julie Kitterman, and Greg Friedman, members of Montalban Quintet, as we take a pre-show look at the group's music and influences. Montalban Quintet performs at the Museum of Making Music on Sunday, September 26, 2021 as part of The San Diego Sound Project.
Montalban Quintet is a music collective based out of San Diego. With infused interests from various musical barrios including post-punk, minimalism, jazz, 50's schmaltz, field recordings, and new western art music, a live show with the Montalban Quintet is an eclectic and soul-filling experience. The live band features Chris Prescott (drums, electronics), Carl Prescott (trumpet), Kenseth Thibideau (bass, vocals), Jim Weiss (tenor and baritone saxophone), Rodrigo Contreras (piano), Greg Friedman (guitar, vocals), Julie Kitterman (glockenspiel, percussion, vocals).
The San Diego Sound Project has been made possible in part by The Conrad Prebys Foundation. This concert series highlights emerging groups or artists within the San Diego region. Support from the Foundation allows us to present these artists live at the Museum while offering a free live stream option. The project is supported by an advisory committee that includes GRAMMY Award winning producer and UCSD faculty member Kamau Kenyatta, CSUSM Professor and Center ARTES Executive Director Dr. Merryl Goldberg, Grossmont College Music Department Chair Derek Cannon, Emmy Award-winning composer and MiraCosta College faculty member Christy Coobatis, and Connections Chamber Music Series Co-Founder Bridget Dolkas.
