Javier Rosario Trio

Saturday - November, 24 @ 8:00pm

Virtuoso guitarist, Javier Rosario is the first ever Michel Camilo
Scholarship winner. The scholarship was an initiative of the Dominican
born, Grammy Award winning pianist. It has been the first scholarship
of its kind in the history of the Dominican Republic, where Javier was
born in Santo Domingo. In 2006, Javier attended Berklee College of
Music under the full scholarship, graduating with the highest ratings
ever given to a guitarist. In 2009, he performed at the Berklee Jazz
and Blues Guitar Night: a concert which only featured the very top
players of the entire school. In 2010, Javier decided to further his
studies at the Longy School of Music of Bard College with a Master’s
degree. There he was acknowledged by his guitar teachers as possibly
the highest level guitarist ever to enter the jazz program.



Among some of the musicians Javier has performed with are: Joe Lovano,
John Lockwood, Matt Savage, Vardan Ovsepian, Jeff Galindo, Phil
Grenadier and Nikolas Anadolis. Javier is one of only a few Dominicans
who have performed at the world famous Blue Note jazz club in NYC as
part of their Emerging Jazz Series. He has also performed at the Casa
de Teatro Jazz Festival, A-Town Jazz Festival, Strand Theater,
Massachusetts’ State House, St. Botolph Club, Berklee Performance
Center, Beehive and Beat Hotel jazz clubs, Blue, Cornelia Street Cafe,
just to name a few. Currently, he is a faculty member at Community
Music Center of Boston, Morse Community School and Amigos Community
School. He is also a traveling performer and recording artist.
