Presented by the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival, Swing into Spring is the culminating concert for the festival-sponsored Jazz Education Program, in which 70 high school musicians from across Central and Eastern Ontario gather for a working-music weekend under the tutelage of some of Canada’s finest jazz stars. This year’s mentors include Kelsey Grant (trombone), Jason Logue and Blair Yarranton (trumpet), Heather Bambrick (vocal), and Marika Galea (bass).
The 2019 program will take place from March 22 – 24. Capping off the three days of workshops, performances, and clinics will be a concert on March 24 at 2PM at the historic Regent Theatre featuring the Brian Barlow Big Band along with the four participating high school ensembles and JUNO nominated vocalist Heather Bambrick.
This concert is reserved seating. Accessible seating available by calling or visiting the Regent Theatre Box Office. Tickets are $34 for adults and $20 for students and can be purchased at the box office or online. The Regent Theatre, 224 Main St, Picton.
