As well as information on each show, you’ll find seating charts so you can chose the theater location you prefer. But don’t wait – the best seats will sell out fast!

New Wine Club Release Available
“A killer box of wine and jazz” is how the Healdsburg Jazz & Wine Club describes their latest selections, once again featuring four terrific wine values and a great jazz CD. The wines include a Martinborough Pinot Noir from New Zealand, a Russian River Viognier from Philip Staley, plus two Dry Creek Valley reds, the Forth 2011 Sangiovese and Unti’s 2012 Barbera. The jazz CD features Festival favorite George Cables in his newest trio release, Icons & Influences.
Club Membership supports jazz performances, music education, and the arts, as proceeds benefit Healdsburg Jazz, the annual Healdsburg Jazz Festival, and educational programs such as Operation Jazz Band.
