International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day is celebrated all over the world on April 30 with live public events. In 2020 the risk of exposure to COVID-19 has changed all that. Undaunted by this turn of events jazz lovers and jazz musicians will celebrate mainly online.

It will be no different for the Glenwood Springs Arts Council, an organization dedicated to providing and supporting the Arts in our area. Although we will not be presenting a public performance for International Jazz Day we have an exciting lineup of local jazz musicians! On our webpage and Facebook page you will find links to these fabulous performers. Look for other forms of art including dance and visual arts, too. In addition to what we’re offering locally, go to the official website Check out the resources there for celebrating the day.

After April 30, we may all need to refrain from large gatherings as we cautiously move toward more “normal” lives.
