Monte Carlo Jazz Festival Fetes SBM’s 150th Anniversary

Salle Garnier of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo

Back in July, celebrity chef Alain Ducasse staged a terrific culinary event to celebrate the 150th birthday of Monte Carlo SBM (Société des Bains de Mer). Monte Carlo's renowned hospitality group comprises five casinos, 30 restaurants and bars, vast recreational facilities, and four luxury hotels (Hôtel de Paris, Hôtel Hermitage, Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort).

The fete continues with the annual Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival which will run from November 26 to 30, 2013. The setting-- the Salle Garnier of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo-- couldn't be prettier. The 8th edition of the festival will host musical legends and rising stars on a fun-filled occasion. On the agenda? Brad Mehldau and Mark Guiliana; guitarists Juan Carmona & Larry Coryell Quartet; Marcus Miller with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra led by Damon Gupton; Remember Shakti; Maceo Parker; James Hunter, and more.
