The 19th Annual Jazz In The Pines continued Sunday with music at three venues, surpassing last year's sales based on early gate counts.
Although Sunday sales numbers are still tabulating, jazz chair Marsha Lytle said that Saturday’s count was higher than last year. In 2011, Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation gave $80,000 from revenues earned to art education at the Idyllwild Arts Academy.
Idyllwild Arts Foundation posted a ‘Sunday Special’ at www.idyllwildjazz.com, featuring half-off ticket prices for military and students at the gate. Early online ticket sales were low before the weekend.
Jazz, blues, Latin and rock music filled the mountain air and could be heard at the nearby Festival Marketplace. More than 50 selected artisans from throughout Southern California displayed their work. Some vendors said that due to conflicts they won’t be able to return to the 20th Annual Jazz In Pines 2013, which will be held a weekend earlier.
Idyllwild Fire Protection District firefighters reported only a few heat related incidents. They were posted on campus throughout weekend.
