20th Anniversary Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines
MOUNTAIN FIRE WON’T STOP ANNUAL JAZZ FESTIVAL! Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines Celebrates its 20th Anniversary August 17 & 18 featuring Veteran Grammy Award Winners, a 21-Year Old American Idol Finalist and Mile-High Festival Fan Favorites – #IdyllwildJazz13 is The Place to be for Music Lovers of All Ages! This first-rate musical celebration continues to draw the young – and the young at heart – with an array of world-renowned artists and jazzy newcomers to the mile-high community in the San Jacinto Mountains, just two hours from Los Angeles. Characterized by propulsive syncopated rhythms, polyphonic ensemble playing, varying degrees of improvisation, and often deliberate distortions of pitch and timbre, this year’s festival once again presents music enthusiasts diverse mix of all things JAZZ at three outdoor venues: Holmes Amphitheatre (“Main Stage”), Stephens Recital Hall (“The Barn”), and The French Quarter, plus the “Festival Marketplace” along winding pathways lined with various art and crafts booths. “Dine in the Pines” offers food, beverages, and alcoholic concoctions for the 21 and over crowd, as well as sponsor and informational booths. Artist highlights this year includes two-time Grammy-Award winning vocalist and pianist Diane Schuur; the Harvey Mason Chameleon Project led by Grammy Award-nominated composure/percussionist Harvey Mason, featuring multiple Grammy Award-nominated pianist/vocalist Patrice Rushen; first-class jazz vocalists Janis Mann and Denise Donatelli; 21-year-old American Idol finalist Casey Abrams; 13-year-old Blues guitarist Ray Goren; and the Southland’s own, Euphoria Brass Band. Plus performances from fan favorites such as P.S. Blues Band, Rocky Zharp & The Blues Crackers, Change Required, and many, many others. Proceeds from the event benefit the Idyllwild Arts Academy.
