Jazz Offerings Continue All Year

Jazz Offerings Continue All Year

We know you’re all eagerly anticipating one of the city’s signature events – the Brantford International Jazz Festival (September 13-15, 2019 if you haven’t already marked your calendars!) Did you know that the Brantford International Jazz Festival also offers an annual Concert Series? If you just can’t get enough of jazz, or you simply want to try out a show before attending the whole weekend festival, there are two exciting concerts coming up at the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts over the next few months.
 
On Monday, February 11 at 8pm, Brantford Downtown Jazz presents Karen Thorton at the Sanderson Centre. Karen Thorton is a singer-songwriter who has been performing in the GTA for a number of years as a solo artist, fronting a jazz trip, and singing with the Russ Little Big Band. Her music is described as jazz-infused vocals with a touch of 70s soul. Her 2015 album, Rain Down on Me, was nominated for a Hamilton Music Jazz Award.

The last concert of the 2018-19 series is Jim Clayton Quartet with Sonja Gustafson on Monday, April 15, 2019 at the Sanderson Centre. Jim Clayton worked as a music director with the Emmy-award winning theatre company, The Second City, entertaining audiences from around the world. His recording act, The Clayton/Scott Group, was named “Group of the Year” twice at Canada’s Smooth Jazz Awards, and won the “Best Jazz Recording” at the Canadian Urban Music Awards. Jim Clayton Trio is joined by Sonja Gustafson, an award-winning London songstress. Her voice is dazzling whether performing passionate ballads, scatting with abandon, or crooning popular covers.
