What a fun concert we had this past Sunday! Our summer series closer featuring music in the style of Django Reinhardt was a hit, here is a clip from that evening below. The musicians featured here were: Suzanne Kennelly (vocals), Neil Watson (saxophone), Clair Tang (violin), Kasey Kurtz (guitar), Aaron Shorr (guitar), Sam Fournier (bass).
Thanks to all who attended and look out for more patio concerts next summer. In the meantime though we are gearing up for our 26th season, stay tuned for more info coming soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra
The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra (WJO) is Canada’s first community-based, non-profit professional jazz orchestra. Founded in 1997 (registered charity in 2000), the WJO has matured to become an important part of Winnipeg’s cultural landscape, reflected in the ongoing support the organization receives from the Manitoba Arts Council, the Winnipeg Arts Council, the Winnipeg Foundation, and other sponsors. The mandate of the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra is to be an instrumental force in the promotion and development of big band jazz in Manitoba and beyond, through performance, composition, recording and education.
