The 2017 Vail Jazz Gala, From Bridge Street to Bourbon Street, will be a dazzling evening of fundraising, exquisite food, and a genuinely soulful performance by “The Voice of New Orleans,” John Boutté.
The evening will feature an alluring silent auction, extraordinary live auction packages, and a spectacular performance. New Orleans jazz legend Boutté will be joined by Vail Jazz Workshop Alumni, bringing together a celebrated legend of jazz history with the genre’s next generation of superstars.
The evening is a benefit for Vail Jazz educational programs, which include the Vail Jazz Workshop, Vail Jazz Goes to School, and Jammin’ Jazz Kids. These programs bring music education into the lives of more than 1,400 students each year through more than 50 educational sessions annually.
