JazzWorks Canada Fundraiser

JazzWorks Canada, now in its 28th year of operations, provides a special niche for adults and high school students in the Ottawa community to immerse themselves in a variety of jazz education initiatives and opportunities including:
- Composers' Symposium
- Summer Jazz Camp
- “JazzWorks Presents” Concerts Series.
- Master Classes and Intensive Workshops with top professional jazz artists/educators
- Monthly Jam Sessions and Vocal Open Mic Nights.  

Like many other non-profits affected by COVID-19, for the past 19 months JazzWorks has been unable to offer our usual in-person jazz education activities. This has resulted in the cancellation of monthly jam sessions and open mic nights and our past two consecutive summer Composers’ Symposiums and Jazz Camps. 

During the pandemic, our participants lost regular occasions to play together through public performances and jam sessions, our faculty lost performance and teaching opportunities, and JazzWorks itself lost a debilitating amount of regular and potential revenue.

Depending on the amount of funds raised, there is now good reason to anticipate the return of JazzWorks Composers’ Symposium and Jazz Camp in August 2022, as well as the resumption of other JazzWorks activities.  

Keeping in mind current public health and safety measures, we will make music together in 2022. If our JazzWorks community comes together in support, we can make it happen.
