Monterey Jazz Festival High School All-Star Band
Each year, Monterey Jazz Festival selects top students from across Monterey County to participate in middle and high school big bands, and a vocal ensemble. Led by MJF Education Director Paul Contos (High School All-Star Band) and renowned educator Dr. Rob Klevan (Honor Vocal and Middle School Band), each all-star ensemble rehearses twice monthly (daily at MJF's annual two-week Summer Camp) while working on ensemble skillsincludes phrasing, blending, improvisation and rhythmic feel, while exploring a range of jazz styles.
The MJF High School All-Stars also perform across Monterey County, at the Next Generation Jazz Festival, and far beyond, testing their chops on the bandstand while bringing great music to the community. In summer 2015, the high school ensembles traveled to Washington D.C., where they performed at the Kennedy Center, the National Archives, and the Bohemian Caverns jazz clubs.
Tickets for the performance are $20.00. The ticket price includes wine and light fare.
