Mountain Light Music Festival promises a jazzy experience


By Sally Neel | Mountain Light Music Festival

Mark July 26-28 on your calendar of not-to-be missed summer music events and plan to attend three fantastic jazz concerts presented by Mountain Light Music Festival. 

The outdoor concerts will take place at the beautiful Keyah Grande Guest House, located at 13211 W. U.S. 160. (Concerts will be moved indoors in case of inclement weather.)

On July 26 at 7 p.m., concert goers will be treated to The Baylor Jazz Trio, featuring members of the Wayne Fisher Jazz Ensemble with powerhouse drummer Ed Taylor. 

On July 27 at 7 p.m., put on your dancing shoes and plan to swing to your favorite big band music with the Wayne Fisher Jazz Ensemble. 

On July 28 at 7 p.m., the grand finale brings more great jazz tunes presented by the Baylor Jazz Ensemble. 

Mountain Light Music Festival is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing high-quality music concerts to Pagosa Springs audiences and outdoor music camp, scholarship and mentoring opportunities to specially selected high school and college-age students.

Tickets for the jazz concerts are $50 per concert and can be purchased at Choke Cherry Tree (56 Talisman Drive, No. 8C) and at the Chamber of Commerce office downtown.
