February 15-17, 2019
The inaugural Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival in 2018 brought "true jazz to Ontario... evoking jazz's golden afterglow of the 1960s and early 70s" (The Globe and Mail). Under the continued guidance of Artistic Director Renee Rosnes, the second edition of this festival promises another exciting weekend of true, swinging jazz in picturesque Niagara wine country.
As the world’s first (and only!) jazz festival bearing the name of Canada’s greatest jazz artist, the Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival honours and celebrates his legacy of excellence. This festival is not intended to simply present concerts in tribute to Oscar Peterson, but rather to truly present jazz, showcasing the rich history and the future of the music Oscar loved.
The Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival gratefully acknowledges the financial support of Presenting Sponsor TD Bank and Official Sound Provider Meyer Sound.
