Toronto Jazz Central Launch

Toronto Jazz Central launch

Toronto’s jazz scene is about to get a big boost in awareness through Toronto Jazz Central (TJC). Formed to raise awareness of live jazz in the city and grow audiences for Toronto jazz locally, nationally and internationally, TJC has been several years in the making and is ready to launch.

TJC is bringing together all facets of the jazz community including venues, festival and event programmers, educators, media and musicians to promote and advocate for Toronto’s thriving jazz community. Starting September 26th, TJC is inviting membership and support from all those interested in seeing jazz in Toronto thrive and grow.
