“Bryan has been a tireless advocate for Jazz in AZ and we are excited he is our new president,” says Joel Goldenthal, the executive director of Jazz in Arizona. “Bryan brings significant hands-on board experience to his new role as president — with an emphasis on fundraising to sustain The Nash, messaging to communicate its unique community value, and board development to enhance the organization’s overall capacity.”

“I am proud to serve as President of Jazz in Arizona, says Albue. “Music has always been very special to me since my grandmother taught me to play the piano at age five.”

Bryan studied classical music and jazz and played trombone in junior high school.
