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.
We invite you to join us, 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, presented by the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival, is all about flourishing, creating in the moment, and overcoming adversity with art.
