Students attending the 2020 Jazz Institute at Brevard program will have the opportunity to learn from the acclaimed jazz-pop vocalist Jane Monheit. During the two-week summer camp taking place June 8–19, Monheit will host masterclasses and join students and faculty in a live performance to anchor the program.

“This is an incredible opportunity for our students to learn from someone as talented and accomplished as Jane Monheit,” said Michael Dease, GRAMMY-Winning Trombonist and Director of the Jazz Institute at Brevard. “She is a great addition to our all-star faculty, and it’s an honor and a privilege to have her as our featured artist.”

Monheit has established herself as one of today’s best jazz vocalists. Her first album, Never Never Land, was voted Top Debut Recording by the Jazz Journalist’s Association and remained on the Billboard Jazz chart for over a year. Most recently, she released her album The Songbook Sessions: Ella Fitzgerald.
