In celebration of the 2022 Jazz Festival Week and National HBCU Week, the Monterey Jazz Festival is collaborating with California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) to present a free jazz concert on Thursday, Sept. 22,  in honor of Bob Danziger, a friend of CSUMB and the Monterey Bay Jazz Festival. 

The concert, sponsored by McDonald’s, will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the World Theater and is free to CSUMB students and community members.

 There will be performances by the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo, and performances from the jazz ensembles and choirs of Morgan State University and Texas Southern University.
