Of course, Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917-1982) was a giant of American music as a jazz pianist and composer. When you buy Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale, a portion of the sale helps support the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, whose mission is to offer the world’s most promising young musicians college level training by America’s jazz masters and to present public school-based jazz education programs for young people around the world.  All of these programs are offered free of charge to the students and schools.

About the All-Star Band

The six young musicians coming to the Mendocino Coast are among the finest young jazz players for their age in the country. They attend one of the eleven high schools that participate in the Monk Institute’s National Performing Arts High School Program. Of all the young musicians in this nation-wide program, they have been selected as members of this extraordinary group.

North Coast Brewing, a longtime supporter of jazz and jazz education, is delighted to sponsor and underwrite the performance and workshop and to be the 2013 Presenting Sponsor of the Mendocino Music Festival.
