Each year, Monterey Jazz Festival selects top students by audition from across the Monterey County region to participate in the High School All-Star big band and Honor Vocal Jazz Ensemble. Led by MJF Education Director Paul Contos (High School All-Star Band), renowned educator Dr. Rob Klevan (Honor Vocal Jazz Ensemble) and Janice Perl (Honor Vocal Jazz), each all-star ensemble performs professional-level arrangements featuring classic gems from the standard jazz legacy, as well as cutting-edge repertoire currently being written for jazz orchestra and vocal ensembles, all exploring a range of jazz styles. The MJF High School All-Stars also perform at the Next Generation Jazz Festival and far beyond, testing their chops on the bandstand while bringing great music to communities. Prior performances include: Millennium Stage at Kennedy Center, National Archives and Bohemian Caverns jazz club (all in
Washington D.C.), Vitello’s Jazz Club (L.A., CA), Vancouver and Victoria International Jazz Festivals (Canada), Jazz Alley (Seattle), American Jazz Museum (Kansas City), Jazz Bistro (St. Louis), and the Noto and Tomisato Jazz Festivals in
Japan.
