The Monroeville Foundation is excited to continue the tradition of the Monroeville Jazz Festival. With the support of the community and local businesses, we look forward to making this event bigger and better.
Thanks to its founder, Chuck Summerville, the annual Monroeville Jazz Festival has become a part of the Monroeville cultural community. Due to Chuck’s retirement, the Monroeville Foundation will assume the role that Mr. Summerville performed so well for so many years, that of producing and facilitating this wonderful event. Chuck has made the Jazz Festival a part of Monroeville’s heritage and the Monroeville Foundation would like to maintain and expand on that heritage.
The Monroeville Jazz Festival would not be possible without the amazing people and companies that support us. Please donate so we can keep bringing you this wonderful event.
