Vail Jazz Workshop

Each year, a dozen of the country’s most dedicated, gifted, and promising high school jazz musicians are chosen from a broad field of talented applicants, receiving scholarships to participate in the 10-day Vail Jazz Workshop.

Vail Jazz Goes to School

Vail Jazz Goes to School has brought jazz education to 4th and 5th graders across Eagle County for the past 24 years from top jazz musicians and educators, led by local legend Tony G.

Upcoming Performances

Hey, jazz lovers, music is coming your way! Maybe you’re in the mood for toe-tapping, finger-snapping, head-bopping, and savoring some of your favorite musicians from the comfort of your home. Vail Jazz has you covered! Live performances will resume this summer from June 30 – Sept 5, and we continue our virtual performances – Jazz Interludes!
