Improvising musicians are among the most creative people in the world. They thrive in the unknown. Rise past a challenge. Express themselves best in the moment. Lock them down? Their art will flourish.
The festival invite you to join, and listeners around the world from June 19th – 28th, for a dozen unforgettable—and unrepeatable—musical presentations, where we’ll delve to the heart of improvisation and creative collaboration. Each performance will be preceded by a live conversation with the principal artists, conducted by journalist James Hale of DownBeat magazine.
Tenacity is all about flourishing, creating in the moment, and overcoming adversity with art. So, we can’t enjoy a golden sunset and star-filled evening in Confederation Park, or share the intimacy of the NAC’s Fourth Stage, but we
have the music, and we have the creative artists who can transport us to magic
spaces of the mind. #TENACITY
