Monterey Jazz Festival comes to Penn State

Six of the most respected jazz musicians will be performing as part of the Monterey Jazz Festival tour at Eisenhower Auditorium this Tuesday, February 16, at 7:30 p.m.

While jazz might not be your thing, next Tuesday’s concert looks like it will be better than most. The performing sextet features pianist Kenny Barron, who was recently named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. To get an idea what this means, other Jazz Masters include Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Horace Silver.

The group will also feature violinist Regina Carter, singer Kurt Elling, guitarist Russell Malone, bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Johnathan Blake, each respected musicians in their own right.

Tickets are available at Eisenhower and online and are only $20 for students.
