Irina Bokova, UNESCO director general, and jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who is chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, chair the International Jazz Day celebration. The Institute is the lead nonprofit organization charged with planning, promoting and producing the annual celebration.
This year's celebration included a videotaped duet by U.S. Antarctic Program participants Kate Fey, recycling coordinator at McMurdo Station, and Shane Hoffbeck, a production cook at McMurdo while on the Ice earlier this year. They performed "The Way You Look Tonight."
