“Thank you to all of you who spent time with us this weekend, and to the many talented people on screen, and behind the scenes, who helped bring you our online experience,” says Festival Artistic Director & Producer Kent Sangster.
We miss working with our festival crews and our volunteers and celebrating our successes with them as well as with our sponsors and partners. It is the support throughout the years of these amazing members of our jazz festival family that have helped us build our festival to what it is today.
NEW THIS WEEK!
This week we introduced a new musical art series called JAZZ MOMENTS as a component of the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival’s online summer celebration. The series combines artwork by local artists with musical improvisation by local musicians in a video short. Take a moment to enjoy great art and great jazz, online everywhere, from our local artists.
HELP US GIVE BACK
Rather than requesting donations for the Edmonton Jazz Festival Society or our performers, the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival is honoured to support the community by highlighting a selection of local charities whose work they believe makes our community a better place to live, work, and play
The Festival wants to celebrate the resiliency and community-minded spirit of Edmonton, and wants to give back to the community. Below are the local organizations chosen for the inaugural Community Charity Initiative. The Festival encourages viewers and supporters to learn more about their important work and contribute to their cause. TD EIJF will be matching community support with a gift of $500 to each listed charity.
