Jazz in the Pines – 2015

Jazz in the Pines, the idea of two Associates 22 years ago!  After 21 years of hard work, the Associates passed the production of Jazz in the Pines to the Idyllwild Arts Foundation.  But that didn’t slow down the planning, hard work, support, and volunteers for this event.  We thank all who volunteered.
