Once again we are happy to present what has become a tradition, our annual Jazz Canada Weekend. The festivities begin with Patricia O`Callaghan, back once again with her wonderful band teamed up with the Pendercki String Quartet for an encore performance of Songbook. In it, they tackle the works of Joni Mitchell, Edith Piaf, the McGarrigle Sisters and Kate Bush. On Saturday, August 4th we have the Dave Young Trio with Pendrecki String Quartet as well as one of our 2018 Stockey Young Artists: Noah Franche-Nolan. Join them as they perform unique renditions of works by Scriabin, Bach, Granados, Charlie Parker, Gershwin and Strayhorn. Sunday afternoon`s concert features the Legendary Gene DiNovi, Drew Jurecka, Dave Young and our own James Campbell. The evening presentation will put the spotlight on perennial favorites the Toronto All Star Big Band. These vibrant young musicians honour the spirit and style of the Big bands of the 30`s and 40`s. On the Civic Holiday we have Andrew Downing, Karoly Lokodi, William Carn, Kevin Turcotte, Dave Young, Graham Campbell and James Campbell. These fine musicians will play in accompaniment with Films of the Silent Era. Closing out the weekend on the Island Queen is an all-star group of artists from this season`s proceedings. They will be Cruising on Georgian Bay playing the Jazz Standards. The group will feature award winning Hungarian singer-songwriter Koszorus Krisztina "Koszika".
