Monterey Jazz Festival has established an endowed fund in honor of one of Monterey's most beloved musicians and teachers, Bob Phillips, whose life of service through music has enriched our community for over 30 years. Through the generosity of his family's matching lead gift, the Fund helps to sustain the Monterey Jazz Festival High School All-Stars and enables students selected for this honor to participate regardless of financial situation.
Each year, over 20 Monterey County high school students are chosen from over 28 schools to be members of the MJF High School All-Stars. The band performs in the community, at the Next Generation Jazz Festival, at festivals and venues across the United States and abroad, and on the stages of the Monterey Jazz Festival in September.
Ensure the continued success of the MJF High School All-Stars by making a gift today.
