16th Annual Jazz on Fourth Street Festival will take place Sunday, May 15, from Noon-5:00pm in Berkeley, CA on Fourth Street between Hearst and Virginia. For more information, visit fourthstreet.com or call the hot line at (510) 526-6294.

This free outdoor music festival, benefiting the jazz programs at Berkeley High School, features the legendary Dixieland outfit Mal Sharpe's Big Money in Jazz Band; the authentic Cuban jazz of Pellejo Seco; the classic blues of Delta Wires; two Berkeley High School Combos and the grand finale with the award-winning Berkeley High Jazz Ensemble, led by musical director Scott Dailey.

During the Festival, a raffle will be held to benefit the Berkeley High School Jazz programs. The street and the plaza will be filled with Fourth Street merchants offering interactive displays, children's activities and unique food and beverages including beer and sake gardens. All proceeds from beer and sake sales go directly to Berkeley High Jazz programs.

The Berkeley High Jazz Program once home to Ambrose Akinmusire, Joshua Redman, Dave Ellis, Peter Apfelbaum, Michael Wolff, Benny Green and many others, is a national model of instrumental education. The proceeds from this event will help the school continue the jazz programs and provide much needed funds for the ensemble to travel to many upcoming national and international jazz festival competitions. Jazz On Fourth Street has collected over $132,500 for the music program since the Festival's inception.
