Four-time GRAMMYⓇ Award-winning bassist, recording artist, and composer Stanley Clarke is partnering with BroadStage as its Artist in Residence. This multi-year partnership includes performances, curation, and mentorship for Santa Monica College Music Department and Santa Monica High School Jazz students. Co-designed by Clarke, BroadStage and school partners, the residency provides direct access and training by this iconic figure for students who are on the cusp of professional careers.

“There has never been a more important time to enliven the culture of creativity than the times we are currently living in. In the recent past we have suffered the loss of many of our important cultural spaces and creators. This presents a crucial moment for our city and for the future of the arts in general. It seems that technological advancement in the arts is taking people further away from the one-of-a-kind experience of being exposed to quality live music. Exposure to the arts at the highest levels is paramount to the spawning of the future of culture and the arts.”
