Since 1958, the Monterey Jazz Festival has been dedicated to changing lives through music and empowering young people to achieve their full potential. Held every September, the Monterey Jazz Festival is the longest-running jazz event in the world. Festivities kick off Thursday evening, September 26, with the 13th Annual Jazz Legends Gala held this year at the Tehama Golf Club in Carmel. This event traditionally sells out — often before invitations are mailed! Tickets are available for $500 each.

The Gala begins with a VIP reception, silent auction and raffle, and then dinner with the evening’s featured performing artists. This year, jazz legends Kenny Barron and Dave Holland will be honored, and six-time Grammy-winning artist Christian McBride will present the awards. The evening’s final act will be a special performance by jazz artist Bria Skonberg, one of the hottest musicians on the scene.
Proceeds from this event fund the Monterey Jazz Festival’s extensive education programs serving 3,000 students in our most under-resourced communities. By supporting this event, you will help bridge the achievement gap in schools for students who need our support the most.
