More about the CSUMB/Monterey Jazz Festival Partnership:
Starting in 2018, The Monterey Jazz Festival and CSUMB entered into a unique educational partnership launching a series of jazz education activities and events for the campus and community made possible by a donation from Robert Danziger and Martha Drexler Lynn. The partnership includes a master class featuring jazz leaders for Music and Performing Arts students and public performances open to all. With live performance sidelined in 2020/21, the master class was transformed to include access to never-before published archival footage from Monterey Jazz Festival performances and interviews (coupled with MJF executives joining in class on Zoom for behind the scenes Q-and-A sessions) providing a course offered nowhere else in the world. We were thrilled to welcome live jazz back to campus in 2021 with Jazz After Hours. We invite you share in the 2022 Educational Showcase in memory and celebration of the late Dr. Robert N. Danziger.
