More than 70 groups and nearly 1200 young musicians from BC and Washington State will converge in Kelowna April 10th to April 12th for the 37th BC Interior Jazz Festival. The festival hosts Jazz Bands, Jazz and Combination Choirs, and Jazz Combos over the three-day event, and remains one of very few competitive (ranked) festivals in Western Canada. As an affiliate of MusicFestCanada, the BC Interior Jazz Festival is able to issue invitations to MusicFest Canada for Gold-ranked groups. In addition to its focus as a competitive performance venue, the BC Interior Jazz Festival features the Jazz Masters’ Concert with special guest artist trumpeter Chase Sanborn along with the talents of many of the festival’s adjudicators and the finest professional players from around the Okanagan valley. This Friday evening event is often sold out, and is always one of the city’s premier Jazz concerts. This year's event is on Friday, April 11th at 7:30pm at the Kelowna Community Theatre. The festival is open to the public, with performances running daily at both the Kelowna Community Theatre and the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Free instrumental and vocal workshops also run at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Friday, April 11th, and Saturday, April 12th. http://bcinteriorjazzfestival.com
