Jazz flutist Nestor Torres was on hand Feb. 2 at Nordhoff High School (NHS) for the BRAVO Program's annual Imagine Concert. Winner of a Latin Grammy Award, Torres appeared for two performances, along with the NHS Jazz Band and the Matilija Junior High School Choir. An educational outreach of the Ojai Music Festival, the BRAVO Program provides music education workshops, internship opportunities, symposia sessions and community performances to inspire students of all ages. Torres' performance at NHS foreshadows the 2017 Ojai Music Festival, whose musical director is jazz-classical composer and pianist Vijay Iyer.
