On Sunday, September 23, jazz lovers and supporters will unite to celebrate the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and its annual International Jazz Competition.

Special guests include Chris Botti and Aretha Franklin. George Duke will serve as the Musical Director.

The celebration, sponsored by Cadillac, is part of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, the most prestigious jazz competition in the world.
