ARTS | Granville | Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour
April 3, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Wrapping up our Vail Series 2022-2023 season, we are proud to present from our friends out west, the Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour with an all-star line-up featuring vocalists Dee Dee Bridgewater (who gave us a remarkable performance in 2018), and Kurt Elling, saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin, pianist Christian Sands, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Clarence Penn.
Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour presents the artistry, spirit, and fun of the Monterey Jazz Festival to audiences far and wide with musicians who embody the Monterey aesthetic by performing music, both historic and new, that reflects the values and legacy of the Monterey Jazz Festival over the last 65 years.
All events subject to change. Audience members will be subject to Denison COVID guidelines in place at the time.

The Vail Series was endowed in 1979 by a generous gift from the late Mary and Foster McGaw in honor of Jeanne Vail, class of 1946. Just as it was intended to do, the Series enriches the artistic experience of the entire Denison community. Programmed creatively with the mindful pursuit of learning across traditional academic boundaries, more than 100 individual Vail Series artists have found their way to Denison’s classrooms and stages, but that doesn’t include the dozens of ensembles or full symphony orchestras that have played here over the years.
