With the encouragement and support of key partners, and the dedicated efforts of this year’s volunteers, we are hosting a scaled-down but exciting online edition of the Merrickville Jazz Fest from October 15 to 18.
The MJF website has been updated and is ready for your visit! We’re proud to present this year’s lineup of artists, featuring some of the festival audience’s favourites from the last few years, plus a new group of musicians that we are delighted to introduce. Some groups are from the Ottawa-Gatineau area, and some are from Montreal or Toronto; all are terrific! Each evening, we will start the festival off with a free Zoom get-together to chat with old MJF friends and meet new ones. On Sunday afternoon, we are pleased to offer a Vocal Masterclass with Laura Anglade before her concert. All the events are very reasonably priced and passes and tickets are now on sale.
Our evening concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. via a special link on the website (available when the concert begins). You will have plenty of time to settle in after the Zoom hang! The shows will be coming to you thanks to the support of our venue hosts — GigSpace and Audio Valley Recording Studio in Ottawa, and The Rex in Toronto — and the talents of our Audio/Video production teams in both cities and, of course, our wonderful artists.
We are thrilled to celebrate ten years of Merrickville’s Jazz Fest with
performances by some great jazz artists that we can all enjoy from the comfort of our own homes — separately, but together — when it’s time to catch a show. See you at MJF 2020 Virtual Edition coming to you at the usual time in mid-October online right here on the MJF web- site! www.merrickvillesjazzfest.com.
