The Yavapai College Performing Arts Center (YCPAC), is hosting several performing arts engagements in the Verde Valley for the 2014-15 season. Later this month, T.S. Monk Jazz Trio will perform at the Charles Mabery Pavilion at the Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus in Clarkdale.

Son of jazz iconic legend Thelonious Sphere Monk, T.S. Monk, has received the New York Jazz Awards' "Recording of the Year" and 'Downbeat's' prestigious Reader's Poll Award among numerous other awards.

On Friday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m., T.S. Monk Jazz Trio takes the stage in the outdoor pavilion.

Rave reviews in the Hollywood Reporter, Variety, the L.A. Times, and others echoed the public sentiment of the sold out concert hall shows across the United States, Europe, South America and the Middle East. With the release of the Billboard Pop-chart-topping Thelonious Records/Blue Note jazz release "Monk and Coltrane at Carnegie Hall," Thelonious guides his father's legacy to additional heights. With his own recording company, T.S. added founder of Thelonious Records to his list of accomplishments. Thelonious Records has released "Monk In Paris: Live At The Olympia" a stellar concert by the legendary pianist/composer.

The T.S. Monk Jazz Trio is just the first of the programming planned for East Yavapai County. Later in the season, performances such as The Man in the Arena: Theodore Roosevelt, Moscow Nights & The Golden Gates, Ahn Trio and Reveille 3, an Andrews Sisters Tribute.

The Verde Valley show is free to the public.
