Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM!) & UN International Jazz Day

Dear Calgary jazz artists:

JazzYYC is happy to celebrate UN International Jazz Day again on April 30, 2016.  This year, we are expanding our events to all of Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM!).  We will have a number of shows that we are now recruiting artists for:

  1. Various Calgary Public Library locations and dates – daytime – duos
  2. Various Calgary Public Library locations and dates – evening – duos and trios
  3. Various other locations dates – duos and trios
  4. Nursing home(s) – afternoon – duo (standards preferred)
  5. International Jazz Day concert on April 30 - quartet

These shows will be offered pending the formal confirmation of our funding.

You will be contracted by JazzYYC.  As part of our outreach program, standard Union tariffs for fees and cartage for a casual engagement will be paid.

International Jazz Day is about building a greater appreciation for jazz globally, so we would like to feature musicians who will engage the audience in a way that increases their understanding and appreciation of jazz.

For more information visit www.jazzyyc.com complete the proposal form and send it  to president@jazzyyc.com by Monday, February 15 at 6:00 p.m. The selections will be made by Monday, February 22. Thank you.
