Join us for the official opening event of the 20th Anniversary Vail Jazz Festival as we kick off a summer of jazz with renowned guitarist and musical raconteur John Pizzarelli, joined by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Jeff Tyzik.

For the third year in a row, Bravo! Vail and Vail Jazz will join together on opening night of both the Bravo! Vail season and the Vail Jazz Festival to celebrate the jazz tradition through enthralling collaborations between jazz greats and a world-renowned symphony orchestra.

The 2014 opening night will feature classics from the American Songbook as Pizzarelli plays through a fabulous collection of timeless standards by Gershwin, Rodgers, Ellington and Arlen.
