Vail Jazz is currently accepting resumes for multiple positions. Please visit the “Join our Team” page by clicking the above image for a complete description of the openings and to apply.


The Fund has been established to honor the memory of Jeff Clayton, a founding faculty member of the Vail Jazz Workshop.  The Fund will provide support for all of Vail Jazz’s Education Programs, including the Vail Jazz Workshop.  Scholarships will be awarded to EVERY student attending the Workshop in the future in a minimum amount equal to one-half of the cost of the Workshop and for students having a greater financial need, additional funding will be provided.

March 1st marks the commencement of a 60-day fundraising campaign, with a goal of raising $60,000 for the Fund. Cathy and Howard Stone have generously offered to match dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 in donations to the Fund through April 30th. Please help us raise $60,000 in 60 days with this generous matching incentive and be a part of the future of jazz!
