Hello Dear Friends,
So, it has finally happened. It is with heavy hearts we write to tell you that on Friday, July 17th, we were informed that our annual October Sun Valley Jazz & Music Festival will not be possible this year. Of course, this is due to the Coronavirus.
We wish this was not the case, and we know you feel the same way. We will miss seeing you in Sun Valley this fall for the best week of the year! Our hope is that soon we will leave this all behind and once again enjoy some timeless moments with live music.
One of our jazz friends described her feelings like this, “The Sun Valley Jazz and Music Festival is one of my favorite events of the year. I love seeing everyone enjoying themselves - the happiness is tangible. I feel like I've won the lottery every time I'm there…musicians and dancers, watching them make their magic - how lucky can one be! I'm truly saddened that we won't all get to be together this year - and heartsore for the musicians. This pandemic has certainly left its mark on so many lives…looking forward to making special memories together again soon!”
The pandemic has indeed had a profound effect on our Sun Valley Jazz organization. Obviously, the festival continues to incur normal operating expenses even though the event has been postponed. This presents a challenging situation moving forward, causing us to reevaluate what the future looks like. Just know that we still want to continue doing what we all love. If you would like to help us “keep the lights on,” please CLICK HERE. All contributions are welcome, very much appreciated, and tax-deductible!
We look forward to seeing all of you October 13-17, 2021!

We are looking forward to that!
