Who is Thelonious Monk?

-- Saturday, May 4 at 11 am

-- Admission $15-$35

-- The Broad Stage, 1310 11th Street, Santa Monica

Jazz pianist Eric Reed takes young people on a journey through history and back again to fire up a love of American music this Saturday morning at The Broad Stage.

“Who is Thelonious Monk?” introduces audiences to a pianist/composer who was one of the unmatched geniuses of jazz.

His music contained dancing rhythms, dissonant harmonies and wild and fun melodies that were even challenging for the musicians in his band.

Everyone will gain an enhanced understanding of what swing really is while learning about one of the greatest musical artists of the 20th century.

Local favorite Beachy Cream will have their delicious ice cream sandwiches available for sale on the plaza.
