Oscar Peterson Intl Jazz Festival – Celebrating Norman Granz
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST$55 – $100
The historic 1792 St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake is the venue for screenings on Saturday afternoon of two documentaries produced by Norman Granz (one of which, Jammin’ the Blues, was nominated for an Oscar), as well as a JATP concert film. Tad Hershorn, jazz archivist and Granz biographer, will moderate, along with Jacques Muyal, long-time associate of Granz.
The 2018 Festival will be dedicated to Norman Granz, celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth. Impresario, record producer, civil rights activist, and founder of Jazz at the Philharmonic, Norman Granz is arguably the most important non-musician in jazz history. The festival is led by Artistic Director Renee Rosnes, Artistic Producer Kelly Peterson, and Executive Producer Bravo Niagara! Festival of the Arts.
