Our volunteer work at the Sun Valley Jazz Festival is always a highlight of our year. We travel the world around 8 months of the year and are so proud that our little home state of Idaho provides such an outstanding experience that easily matches other worldwide events and venues. The SVJF is always a very high quality experience in every way...music, organization, facilities, reasonable cost, beautiful venues, gorgeous surrounding area, professionalism, friendliness, fun, romance, etc. etc. etc. The organizers, especially Sonne, the Volunteer Mgr., makes our work a very enjoyable experience. We especially appreciate her efforts to schedule our work times convenient to our personal desires and needs. Patrons frequently comment how volunteers really enjoy their service and also ask us how they can become volunteers themselves. This event, and the opportunity to volunteer, is one of Idaho's nicest secrets, and usually takes people very pleasantly by surprise when they discover it. I wish somehow we could publicize it even more, because those who finally discover it usually return again and again. A major discovery of ours that causes us to never miss it is that the music is not just jazz alone, but also includes big band, gospel, R & B, Rock & Roll, Country, Classical, blue grass, etc....plus, dancing venues and lessons. We are in our 70's, nearing our Golden Anniversary, and fall in love again each time we go! Dick and Lawana Johnson
