Idyllwild Arts Academy announces the return of its popular annual fundraiser, Jazz In The Pines, marking its 30th and final year with an exciting lineup of live performances by famed artists as well as students, taking place on the art school’s 250-acre campus (52500 Temecula Road #38, Idyllwild, CA 92549) along with two special events at The Merc in Temecula, CA. For 30 years, Idyllwild Arts has brought legendary jazz giants from across the US to perform for eager audiences and, most recently, to work alongside the young jazz enthusiasts of Jazz In The Pines Student Clinic. Beginning in 1994, this final iteration will be dedicated to the memory of jazz guitar giant, Bob Boss.

Jazz In The Pines is curated by festival co-founder Dr. Marshall Hawkins - the legendary bassist, and beloved teacher - along with revered New York Times-featured jazz vocalist Rose Colella. The life & career of Dr. Marshall Hawkins - who has played with jazz giants from Miles Davis to Shirley Horn and Roberta Flack - has been and continues to be a cornerstone for jazz at Idyllwild Arts from founding the Academy’s Jazz Program in 1986 to curating performances that have attracted thousands of music lovers to the mountain town over the years.

The 2-week Festival will include a headlining performance by the legendary John Daversa & his Big Band featuring the Grammy Award-nominated album “Kaleidoscope Eyes: Music of the Beatles”, Dr. Marshall Hawkins Seahawk MoJO: “A Tribute to Bob Boss”, Harry Pickens, Euphoria Brass Band, The Rose Colella Quartet, The Idyllwild Arts Jazz Faculty Big Band, Idyllwild Arts All-Star Student Jazz Combo, and more. In celebration of this momentous occasion, Idyllwild Arts hopes guests will also consider a donation during the final festival year to support student scholarships. Tickets available for purchase at:
