Fred Taylor Scholarship Fund All-Star Benefit

September 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$35 - $150

This not-to-be-missed all-star concert celebrates Boston music icon Fred Taylor and establishes an endowed scholarship for Berklee students in his name. The lineup includes several leading jazz luminaries:

Grammy-winning percussionist and composer Terri Lyne Carrington B.M. ’83 ‘03H, Zildjian chair in performance at the Berklee Global Jazz Institute

Grammy-winning jazz vocalist, composer, and lyricist Kurt Elling
Grammy-winning jazz pianist, composer, and educator Danilo Pérez B.M. ‘88, founder and artistic director of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute

Grammy-winning bassist and composer John Patitucci, Berklee artist-in-residence perhaps best known for his work with Chick Corea '97H

Acclaimed chart-topping jazz and blues vocalist Catherine Russell, former Berklee faculty member

Rising saxophonist (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), singer, and composer Grace Kelly B.M. ’11

Rising trumpeter and composer Jason Palmer, Berklee assistant professor, who returns after leading a band at the Newport Jazz Festival

Singer-songwriter Kat Edmondson, as recently seen/heard in Woody Allen’s Café Society

Longtime Boston trumpeter and bandleader (Boston Pops Swing Orchestra) Bo Winiker

Blues legend James Montgomery

Virtuoso pianist of reggae and jazz Monty Alexander

And a special appearance by multi-Grammy-winning jazz guitarist, composer, and former Berklee faculty member Pat Metheny '96H.

Purchase tickets here. VIP tickets in Rows A-L include complimentary admission to an "after-concert concert" immediately after the show, at a venue (to be determined; within walking distance) to continue to celebrate with Boston-area songstresses such as Rebecca Parris, as well as Taylor's sit-down comedy.

Taylor has been an unparalleled driving force in making Boston a great music city. For more than five decades, Taylor—Boston's ageless, irrepressible impresario—has devoted his life to nurturing gifted artists, presenting the who's who in jazz and beyond, and providing grateful audiences with extraordinary listening experiences.
