The Brian Barlow Big Band, with its cast of award-winning musicians will play with JUNO-nominated vocalist Heather Bambrick at Picton’s historic Regent Theatre on Sunday March 24th at 2:00pm. It’s the culminating concert for the festival-sponsored Jazz Education Program, in which 70 high school musicians from across central and eastern Ontario gather for a working-music weekend under the tutelage of some of Canada’s finest jazz stars. This year’s “mentors” include Kelsey Grant (trombone), Jason Logue and Blair Yarranton (trumpet), Heather Bambrick (vocal), and Marika Galea (bass).
A unique and audience-pleasing aspect of the final concert is that the young musicians also play on stage with their mentors. For nearly a decade now, participants in the Jazz Education Program have gone on to study music and even be hired as performers at the Prince Edward County and other festivals. Get your tickets now to see the next generation of Canadian Jazz stars!
This concert is reserved seating. Accessible seating available by calling or visiting the Regent Theatre Box Office.
