An evening of exotic rhythms, sultry songs, and delectable cuisine, featuring ‘brazilian jazz’ vocalist, Carol Bach-y-Rita.
Join Carol Bach-y-Rita and a cast of international jazz superstars as they explore the rich musical diversity of Brazil! Performing alongside alumni of the Vail Jazz Workshop, Carol will transport us to the melodic and rhythmic epicenters of Bossa Nova, Samba, Choro and more through her passionate interpretations of the Brazilian Songbook.
The 2018 Vail Jazz Gala: Bossa Nova Nights is a benefit for Vail Jazz education and community engagement programs, which reach 1,400 students and offer more than 35 free world-class performances in the Vail community each year. With a dazzling array of premiere silent and live auction items and a special fundraising appeal, we’ll celebrate, sing, and sway to the music of Brazil while supporting the future of jazz education and artistic diversity in our valley.
