Project Description

Monterey Jazz Festival’s mission is to celebrate the legacy of jazz, expand its boundaries, and provide opportunities to experience jazz through the creative
production of performances and educational programs.

The Monterey Jazz Festival, held every September, is the longest running annual jazz event in the world, and the Festival is a long-standing
beneficiary of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Since 1958, MJF has been dedicated to changing lives through music. With a steadfast commitment to education, MJF annually invests over $900,000 to provide comprehensive year-round education with the best jazz musicians and music instructors available. These programs help fill an educational gap in our schools’ underfunded music programs, provide extensive performance opportunities, foster creativity and build character for the next generation’s jazz musicians.
