Your support can help so much. A donation to the Yardbird Suite plays a critical role in the productions and operations allowing us to:

  • Provide every weekend between the middle of September and the end of June a unique and innovative jazz experience unfolds in the Yardbird’s casual and intimate atmosphere.
  • In addition to averaging 75 concerts a season the Yardbird currently hosts:
  • Weekly Tuesday night jam sessions,
  • Sponsors the Littlebirds Big Band,- presents Jazz For Kids events, and hosts the Yardbird Festival of Canadian Jazz.

Yardbird Suite programming has enabled local musicians to play with luminaries of the jazz world and be broadcast nationally – in partnership with the CBC and Radio-Canada.

The Yardbird Suite has also been hailed as a Downbeat Magazine “Great Jazz Venue” multiple years running.
