Joining together for only the second time in a precedent-setting partnership, the Appalachian Theatre of the High Country (ATHC), Boone Sunrise Rotary, and the Jazz Studies Program at Appalachian State University proudly announce the sponsors of the second annual High Country Jazz Festival. This event is a collaborative project that aims to host exceptional and engaging jazz experiences for local residents and regional audiences with proceeds to support arts, education, and civic programs that enrich our High Country home.

Our volunteers, paid staff, performers, and sponsors are important to the success of the High Country Jazz Festivals. Without our sponsors’ help, we wouldn’t be able to put together an impressive line-up of jazz performers in great venues. Please take a moment to thank these businesses and individuals who helped with this year’s festival.
