Since 1977 Telluride’s majestic perch – high in the spectacular San Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado — has been the site of an annual cultural event produced by the Telluride Society for Jazz combining the finest of nature and art that ranks among the world’s most memorable music festivals. The intimate format and abundant opportunities to enjoy spectacular alpine recreational activities complement the superb music presented each year at the Telluride Jazz Celebration (TJC). Combining performances on outdoor stages during the day with theater and club shows at night, the TJC offers the best of both worlds.
This year’s edition takes place from August 5th – 7th and will feature some fantastic artists from across the decades. Highlights include Allen Toussaint, The Bad Plus, Tower of Power, and Walter, Roberts & Deitch. Tickets start at $105 and are available now at Telluridejazz.org.
