Monterey Jazz Festival’s 2015 Artist-in-Residence, Wynton Marsalis, once said that “jazz music can connect us to our earlier selves and to our better selves-to-come. It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.”
The vision of Monterey Jazz Festival is to enrich life through jazz. We know you share this vision, as you have dedicated your time each September to celebrate the joy of music and the community it creates. With your help we can be a part of the crusade that ensures music, and jazz, is made available to all young people.
