Subscribe to JazzScene here or simply send a blank email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to be eligible to enter our next draw!

We respect your privacy. Unlike many other draws that are scams for building marketing lists, we only collect information required to reach a draw winner: your name and contact info. Only the winner's name is shared with the concert promoter, so they know who to admit to the concert.

Tickets for the draws are generously provided by the artists or concert presenters, as noted in each draw. Please support the artists, presenters, and venues that have supported OttawaJazzScene.ca, by buying their music and attending their ticketed concerts.

Each draw winner is selected randomly by random.org from all eligible entries received by  the specified entry deadline.

Artists and concert promoters: If you would like to increase the visibility of your upcoming event and support OttawaJazzScene.ca's work by donating tickets for a draw please contact the publisher, Brett Delmage. We recommend that you contact us no later than two full weeks before your event, but we may still be able to run a draw on much shorter notice.

Won! tickets to double bill Juno winner Stretch Orchestra, plus Jaron Freeman-Fox and The Opposite Of Everything

Congratulations to Chris Fleming, who won the pair of tickets to hear the double-bill Juno-winning Stretch Orchestra, with Matt Brubeck, Kevin Breit and Jesse Stewart, and also Jaron Freeman-Fox and The Opposite Of Everything on Thursday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the NAC Fourth Stage. Ontario Scene generously donated these tickets.

The skill testing question, "Name a musician you are looking forward to hearing in this performance and briefly tell us why. Spelling counts!" received a wide variety of interesting personal answers. Here are a few of them:

"Kevin Breit. He is a great guitarist, and I have seen him before. He is constantly evolving!"

"Jaron Freeman-Fox is who I look forward most, because he plays the very unique 5 string violin, in the tradition of his late mentor Oliver Schroer"

"Actually I'm interested to hear them all! I've heard Stretch Orchestra before and loved them. I love their quirky instrumentation. I LOVE the cello. It's great to hear Matt Brubeck use it in a different, unique way other than just classical orchestral music. And I'm looking forward to hearing Jason Freeman-Fox because I associate fiddle with Maritimes and then to hear it paired with Indian music - which is so unique..."

Helpful information to answer this skill-testing question could be found on the NAC website where you can also find out more about the concert and purchase tickets.
