JazzWorks is an Ottawa-based Canadian not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of jazz musicianship in players of all ages. To achieve its mandate and goals, JazzWorks carries out a wide range of activities including the summer Jazz Camp, monthly jam sessions, and concerts throughout the year.
Our mandate and artistic goals are three-fold:
•To raise awareness of jazz music as an art form in the community
•To promote the development of jazz performance in Ottawa and area through educational and collaborative activities and performances that involve amateur and professional jazz musicians in a concert setting
•To develop and provide access to creative networking and the building of performance ensembles (small groups/jazz combos).
