TD Ottawa Jazz Festival 2021

Where: Confederation Park, ,
When: Thursday, August 19, 2021 - Sunday, August 22, 2021

The TD Ottawa Jazz Festival is taking to the stage this year, both virtually and in-person.

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

Canada background and overview
A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to the British crown. Economically and technologically the nation has developed in parallel with the US, its neighbor to the south across an unfortified border. Canada's paramount political problem is meeting public demands for quality improvements in health care and education services after a decade of budget cuts. Canada also faces questions about integrity in government following revelations regarding a corruption scandal in the federal government that has helped revive the fortunes of separatists in predominantly francophone Quebec.
