Hit “Repeat” for the Party of the Summer!

What better reason to cut loose as we mix and mingle, move and groove, and celebrate 25 groundbreaking years of education with the Vail Jazz Workshop. A streamlined auction, free-flow dinner, and dancing to a special band made up of our very own, Vail Jazz Workshop Alums! Let’s continue the fun as we honor a great musician and educator, Tony Gulizia.

Attire is ‘mountain festive’ – we’ll see you there!
