Jazz on Fourth

Very special thanks to Abrams/Millikan and the Fourth Street Merchants along with Trumer Brauerei and Takara Sake, for bringing the community Jazz on Fourth for almost 20 years and raising well over $165,000 for our program. Jazz on Fourth is a wonderful street fair held in May. Our Ensemble and a Combo will be playing there alongside the best of the Bay Area’s jazz musicians. We hope to see all of you there!

Bill Bennett Scholarship Fund

We are deeply grateful to the family of the late Bill Bennett and the generous donors to the Bill Bennett Scholarship Fund. The Bill Bennett Scholarship Fund supports our ability to offer financial assistance to students with demonstrated financial need so that they can support their musical development with individual lessons and the opportunity to attend music camps. Bill Bennett was the Principal Oboist with the San Francisco Symphony and the father of Berkeley High Jazz alum Danny Bennett, class of 2013.

KCSM 91.1 FM

KCSM has been a supporter of many Bay Area jazz organizations for years and BHS Jazz is no exception. The station’s announcers and staff have helped to promote our program, and its alumni, on-air and off. Please listen to, and support, KCSM!
