The Jazz Project's Inaugural Concert was on My 12th 2018 at St. Peter St. Simon's Church in Toronto.
The Inaugural concert of Toronto’s own, (The Jazz Project) in collaboration with TranzitionzJazz was a complete success. It was sold out on Eventbrite with Jazz music lovers lined up at the doors, trying to get tickets for the show. The evening unfurled with TranzitionzJazz’s rendition of Claude Bolling’s Veloce; followed by a medley of delightful classics that lead to the unveiling of the lustrous voices of The Jazz Project.
Welcoming the mise en scène of beauty in presentation and harmonic blends, The Jazz Project commanded the presence of their audience and professionals in the industry. The entire evening was fun, charming and well composed with an overwhelming amount of positive feedback. Here’s a short side clip of the intro of “Reeling in the years medley,” just before the encore.
