Stillwater All Stars regional tour
The Stillwater All Stars, a group of advanced students performing alongside faculty members, play a high-energy set of funk, hip-hop infused jazz and Latin numbers. Now in its second year, the All Stars summer program was born out of a special invitation to have Stillwater students perform at the Telluride Jazz Festival. This summer's tour will see a return of the All Stars to the main stage at the Telluride Jazz Festival as well as appearances in Dolores and Durango.
