Jazz at Filoli concerts start Sunday

Tickets are now on sale for the 24th season of Jazz at Filoi. The six outdoor Sunday concerts are held at the historic estate, 86 Canada Road in Woodside, from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

The season's first presentation is the Jamie Davis Big Band on June 15.

Jamie Davis has performed around the world as lead singer with the Count Basie Orchestra. His band is made up of top players in the Bay Area, led by Fred Berry, director of the Stanford Jazz Orchestra.

A Jazz at Filoli ticket includes all-day admission to Filoli, snacks and drinks, including beer and wine, during the concert. Boxed lunches are available for purchase in advance or attendees may bring their own picnic. Gates open at 11 a.m.

This season is dedicated to the memory of Bud Spangler, who died Jan. 16. He and Chuck Huggins created Jazz at Filoli in 1991. Mr. Spangler produced the series through 2007.

A series subscription to all six concerts is $395. Individual concerts are $70. Boxed lunches are $18 per concert and must be ordered in advance.
