*Telluride Jazz Celebration to Kick Off 2008 Telluride Music Festival
Season June 5-8*
Telluride, CO - The Town of Telluride on October 3, 2007 approved a date
change for the annual Telluride Jazz Celebration (TJC), which will take
place June 5-8, 2008 and kick off the town's annual summer music
festival season. The jazz festival, which had been produced each year
during the first weekend in August since its debut in 1977, will now
coincide with the annual Telluride Hot Air Balloon Festival. Telluride
will be celebrating "Jazz in June with Balloons" in 2008 as the 32nd
Annual Telluride Jazz Celebration and the 25th Annual Telluride Hot Air
Balloon Festival fill the air with colorful sights and sounds.
"The new June date for Telluride Jazz creates a great opportunity to
kick off our town's summer music activities with the mountains coming
alive with bright green aspens, colorful balloons and world class
music," Telluride Society for Jazz Executive Director Paul Machado said.
"What a full weekend of activities Telluride will have this coming
June," Marilyn Branch, chair of the Balloon Festival, added. "We'll have
airborne balloons early in the morning, jazz all day, and even more jazz
to complement the Main Street GLO on Saturday evening. What an exciting
way to launch our series of summer festivals."
Since 1977, Telluride's majestic perch - high in the spectacular San
Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado has been the site of a musical
odyssey combining the finest of nature and art. Each year the Telluride
Society for Jazz produces one of the most memorable festivals in the
world. Its intimate format and many opportunities for enjoying
spectacular mountain activities complement the superb music. Combining
outdoor stages during the day with theater and club shows running at
night, this festival has the best of both worlds.
The Telluride Jazz Celebration is presented by No Wasted Notes and also
presented by Raynier Institute & Foundation, Mountain Village Owners
Association, US Bank of Telluride and Subaru of America.
