If your idea of relaxation is an outdoor concert by one the very best student jazz ensembles in the United States you should head to the Fowler Museum at UCLA on Wednesday, May 30, for a free performance by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Ensemble.

Members of this ensemble are selected by Herbie Hancock, Herb Alpert, Wayne Shorter, Jimmy Heath, Kenny Burrell and James Newton, to study with legendary jazz artists in this full-scholarship graduate program at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. Their program will feature original compositions inspired by exhibitions currently on view.

#FowlerOutLoud is an evening concert series that invites UCLA students from various disciplines to perform at the museum. Support for Fowler Out Loud comes from the UCLA Office of Residential Life.

The concert, which begins at 6 p.m. and lasts for an hour, will be held in the museum’s Davis Courtyard.
