The Berklee Global Jazz Institute Septet will play at the 53th annual Monterey Jazz Festival, which features live jazz on multiple stages over three days. The group will be laying at the Garden Stage at the festival.

The Berklee Global Jazz Institute (BGJI), directed by world-renowned pianist Danilo Perez, is a unique focused area of study at the college designed to foster creativity and musicianship through various musical disciplines. Danilo Perez serves as its artistic director. Students may pursue a performance degree, diploma, or two-year certificate through the institute.

The BGJI has three main goals: to provide an interdisciplinary music program where students may explore their creativity to the highest level; to explore the social power of music as a tool for the betterment of society; and to connect musical creative thinking with the restoration of nature.

The Monterey Jazz Festival is dedicated to perpetuating the uniquely American form of music known as jazz by producing performances that celebrate the legacy and expand the boundaries of jazz, and by presenting year-round local, regional, national, and international jazz education programs.
