My first exposure to the Sun Valley Jazz Festival was in 1995; in 1997 I began volunteering and haven't missed a festival. Being a volunteer gives you an all inclusive feeling. Besides being helpful to the attendees and enjoying wonderful music, we are constantly being thanked for our help and appreciated by the Founders' family, the musicians, other volunteers and, most outwardly, by the volunteer coordinator, who does everything in her power to maintain a smooth working volunteer experience. Sun Valley is a beautiful setting, and the towns people are welcoming and friendly. This American- born jazz music is on the decline so the importance of this festival is one of awareness, promotion, and survival. In the last few years we have seen more young people participating in and enjoying the jazz at the Jamboree.
