SASS Jazz Band members attended Monday's meeting to thank Rotary for its donation to their trip to Ottawa to attend the  Ottawa Jazz Festival. These five young musicians, Madeline, Gray, Luke, Matt and Carson, presented videos of two numbers, and told of their future plans as they are all graduating this spring.   


The  TD Jazz Youth Summit is a program run by the Ottawa Jazz Festival that brings together top young musicians from across the nation.

Taking place during the Festival, the Summit provides young Canadian musicians a rare platform to develop their big band experience by working with internationally acclaimed musicians and clinicians, culminating in two performances on the Main Stage. 

These five talented musicians will gain much from their experience in Ottawa.  Visiting musicians will conduct workshops for the Summit participants,  and they have the opportunity to perform alongside professional jazz musicians and legends during the Late Night Jam sessions happening every night at 10:30pm.
