On eight Friday evenings, beginning March 16, downtown Nanaimo’s SHAW Auditorium will reverberate with Live Jazz. The new Have You Heard? series will showcase eight of Vancouver Island’s best professional Jazz Ensembles, who the audience will also be able to meet after the concert.
This new series is presented by the Nanaimo International Jazz Festival Association [NIJFA] whose president Andrew Homzy, says “Thanks to our members, donors and supporters, we are able to move closer to our goal of creating a home for jazz in Nanaimo and helping to raise the cultural profile of our city.”
The intimate 200-seat auditorium in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre (161 Commercial Street) features bar service, indoor parking and elevator access to the elegant auditorium and lobby.
The March - June series leads up to Nanaimo’s second annual Three-Day Jazz Festival, also downtown, on September 21-23.
