An Invitation from Joel Grey
Littlebirds Jazz Bands
“Join us for World Premiere music from the best in Youth Jazz in Canada.”
The Littlebirds is a music enrichment program hosted by the Edmonton Jazz Society based out of the Yardbird Suite. For the last 32 years, we had an 18-piece big band and a small jazz combo that perform at various functions throughout the city.
The pandemic has been hard on musicians, and instead of a big band, the Littlebirds were reorganized into three small combos to meet the provincial requirements for indoor rehearsals. Last year, our season was cut short because of COVID-19 but thanks to the generosity of many Edmontonians, the Littlebirds combo performed 22 outdoor concerts. If you are interested in having the Littlebirds perform an outdoor concert in your community this summer please email me at email@example.com.
The three Littlebirds Combos will be performing their year-end concerts on Sunday June 27th 2:00 p.m. at Big Miller Park outside the Yardbird Suite at 1312 109 St NW featuring the talents of 22 young musicians. The concert will not only showcase their performing skills but also their writing talents as most of the music being performed was written by them.
As this is an outdoor concert, please bring your own chairs and blankets and protection from the sun. We will have some volunteers on hand to ensure a safe setting for everyone, as we need to follow the provincial health guidelines. Please remain within your family cohorts, and maintain social distance whenever possible. There is limited space so first come, first served. In the event of rain, we will have to delay the show, or maybe even reschedule it. We’ll keep you posted, and we thank you for your understanding.
This concert is free, but we will also be accepting donations to help support our program, and your generosity is greatly appreciated.
