The Telluride Society for Jazz is dedicated to the preservation, appreciation and artistry of the “Great American Art” called Jazz. Since 1977, this event has consistently earned national and international attention for featuring the best in classic/mainstream, blues, and international jazz. It spotlights some of the finest internationally accomplished artists, along with exciting new talent, in a remarkable setting that brings jazz lovers to Telluride from all over the world. Performances are staged outdoors in the daytime and in intimate clubs and historic concert halls by night. We attempt to bring together, not just people who love jazz, but those who cherish the glorious outdoor scenery and the mountain adventures available in Telluride.
