Evergreen Jazz Festival will showcase products like providing student musicians with the opportunity to learn from established professionals, including many members of the Queen City Jazz Band. Workshops at West Jefferson Middle School have been particularly successful, inviting exciting and talented acts from across the country and beyond, etc.
When it all started, many in the jazz world must have thought, “That Colorado altitude has taken its toll on those guys. Start a traditional jazz festival in this era?” But a small group of dedicated jazz lovers did just that, and to the amazement of many, this July we present the nineteenth ren-dition of the Evergreen Jazz Festival. It promises to be another outstanding event, living up to the enthusiastic description by a national columnist as “the best jazz festival anywhere!”
Located just 30 minutes southwest of Denver, the scenic mountain community of Evergreen provides an idyllic setting for the 3-day event. Five distinctive, intimate venues ranging from a church to a bar and grill give audiences a delightful variety of up-close-and-personal listening experiences. And the music? Just check this year’s lineup! Absolutely top quality musicians, as always
No big crowds. No big stages. No big sound systems. Just a big jazz experience you’re sure
to enjoy. Browse the website and check out this video to get an idea of what a special time this is.
