Vail, CO – The Vail Jazz Festival presents the second installment in a series of nine Jazz @ Vail Square performances on Thursday, July 12 with Wil Campa Y Su Gran Union in the Jazz Tent at The Arrabelle in Vail Square in Lionshead. The performance begins at 6 p.m. Tickets for preferred seating at the front of the tent are $20 and guarantee concertgoers a spot for the entirety of the performance. Free general admission seating at the back of tent is also available on a first-come, first-served basis. A $99 Jazz Pass is offered with preferred seating for the remaining eight performances.
 
Wil Campa y Su Gran Union will rock the Jazz Tent this Thursday with their high-powered Cuban jazz. Campa and his 13-piece orchestra are influenced by the styles of the ’40s and the ’70s, creating their unique sound by fusing the rhythms of two generations.
