AT 10 YEARS,
JPEC continues its commitment TO Canadian Jazz
Happy New Year! As JPEC begins its 10th year as a non-profit arts/music hub, our first job is to thank everyone who has supported us in the past decade. Your presence at our concerts, your appreciation of our school outreach program, your donations that allow us to stay strong, all continue to keep us going.
We’ve come a long way in 10 years. And while JPEC has presented jazz from performers all over the world in order to introduce audiences to new and diverse music, Canadian talent is closest to our hearts.
From our first gala in honour of Lieutenant Governor Lincoln Alexander, the first person of colour in this position in Ontario, featured Canadian great jazz performers including Archie Alleyne, Peter Appleyard, Guido Basso, Molly Johnson and Jackie Richardson to last year’s blow out concert by Darcy Hepner’s tribute to Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, JPEC has demonstrated its dedication as a strong supporter of quality Canadian jazz.
We are grateful for your past support. As the new year rolls on we will be expanding our horizons and presenting new and exciting ideas and events. We ask that you continue to help us grow in the next 10 years.
