Embrace All Things Music During the Touring Monterey Jazz Festival
Join the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour this coming spring when it makes a stop at Manship Theatre on Thursday, March 28th! As the world's longest continuously-running jazz festival, Monterey Jazz Festival celebrates the legacy of jazz, expands its boundaries, and provides opportunities to experience jazz through the creative production of performances and educational programs.
The Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour 60th Anniversary Edition features a top roster of diverse and international millennial talent and the leaders of jazz’s future, including Cécile McLorin Salvant, vocals; Bria Skonberg, trumpet, vocals; Melissa Aldana, tenor saxophone; Christian Sands, piano and musical director; Jamison Ross, drums, vocals; and Yasushi Nakamura, bass.
To celebrate the Festival’s 60th Anniversary of its inception in 2018, Artistic Director Tim Jackson put together an all-star band that represented the future of jazz in a nationwide tour. Previous incarnations include a 50th anniversary tour in 2008, and additional national tours in 2010, 2013, and 2016, with a collective 163 performances to over 115,000 fans across the country.
Tickets are $25-$45 plus fees and can be purchased online at https://www.manshiptheatre.org. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to attend performances. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for children before planning to attend.
At The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
