More than just a festival, the Telluride Jazz Festival works in collaboration with the Telluride Society for Jazz to help preserve the rich traditions of jazz through music education, outreach and other programs. As a non-profit organization with sizable goals, the Telluride Society for Jazz’s work is never done. As the height of the summer season approaches, we take a look at the non-profit’s upcoming year and what to look forward to.
The Telluride Society for Jazz (TSJ), a 501(c)(3) organization, presents and hosts musical performances and opportunities for music education within the Town of Telluride and the surrounding region, both during the annual Telluride Jazz Festival and at other times throughout the year.
Our overall goal is to, in partnership with our production partner SBG Productions, produce The Telluride Jazz Festival. TSJ utilizes its net proceeds from the festival, along with grants and charitable donations from the public, to support and expand its educational programs.
Summer Jazz Series
The Telluride Society for Jazz and Palm Arts have partnered to bring the Summer Jazz Series and youth outreach program to the San Juan Mountains with live performances, in-school performances, and workshops in both Telluride and Ouray.
