JazzWorks has just been awarded a “targeted program grant” through the Arts Presentation Canada (APC) Fund of the Dept of Canadian Heritage to support our “JazzWorks Presents” Concert Series for 2021-22. These live concert events will feature visiting guest artists, along with JazzWorks Faculty and other local and Canadian jazz artists. The concert dates and artist lineup will be announced soon . . . so stay tuned for details!
Our Board has also begun making plans for our Annual Jazz Camp and Composers’ Symposium to be held in August 2022 at the CAMMAC Music Centre. We hope to resume live JazzWorks Jam Sessions soon, as well as to get our vocalists off Zoom and back to singing with a live accompanist for our Vocal Open-Mic Nights starting in January.
We will need your ideas . . . and your help to make this happen. Covid has been very challenging for JazzWorks and our community of jazz lovers, on many fronts. A JazzWorks board member or volunteer will be contacting each of you individually over the next several weeks to seek your input and your support to make Jazz Camp and our jazz community activities happen again in 2022.
