1,500 Musicians at 40 Locations
Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival has become known as one of North America’s premier jazz festivals. What began in 1987 as an eight-day showcase of jazz now attracts in excess of 500,000 loyal patrons annually over 10 days. Attractions include more than 350 performances with over 1,500 musicians performing at 40 locations around Toronto.
The heart of the festival is Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto with an impressive 1,200-seat, fully-licensed mainstage marquee and outdoor stage, where many extraordinary events are offered free to the public.
A few of the acts for 2016 have been announced and the lineup so far is looking stellar: Wynton Marsalis with the Lincoln Centre Jazz Orchestra will give traditional jazz fans a thrill when they play Koerner Hall on June 28, 2016. The legendary keyboardist Chick Corea brings his trio (with Christian McBride and Brian Blade) to the same venue on June 29. The full lineup for the 2016 festival will be announced soon.
