Sonically In Sync
It’s another weeknight at Cal State Long Beach, but the sounds of a saxophone can be heard near the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. A closer look uncovers a different world for most students unfamiliar with the music department. Individual rooms are available for music students to practice their craft and in most cases, the rooms resemble more of a jam session between the different musicians instead of individual practice.
It is here where Anibal Seminario can be found practicing his saxophone solo as he awaits the arrival of his friends. He, along with three other musicians, make up a jazz quartet that performs on campus. While Seminario has a quiet demeanor, the talk of music quickly changes that as he opens up about not only his passion but his choice of study. Seminario is a jazz studies major who is now working on his master’s degree with plans of teaching and performing once he’s done with his education.
“I want to have a good music school,” Seminario said. “Something that prepares you for college. My vision is to have something practical for people where they can learn what they want and go.”
