“JAZZ AND NEW HORIZONS”
A Special Collaboration Between the Monterey Jazz Festival and Cal State University, Monterey Bay
Thursday, April 4 at 8 p.m. at the World Theater
Monterey, CA – The 2019 Monterey Jazz Festival Artists-in-Residence, Allison Miller and Derrick Hodge will be performing an innovative, new program on Thursday, April 4 at 8 p.m. at the World Theater on the campus of California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB).
This unique evening, which focuses on the creation of provocative musical collaborations, is made possible by the generous support of Robert Danziger and Martha Drexler Lynn. The partnership was established in 2018 between the Monterey Jazz Festival (MJF) and CSUMB, according to Colleen Bailey, MJF Executive Director. “This collaboration blurs the lines between musical genres while respecting the cultural and historical legacies of jazz. This performance is important because it reaches out beyond the traditional jazz listening audience to widen and diversify the jazz community throughout the world,” she said.
