Congratulations to Rick Pearlman who won the tickets to see this unique show. Thanks to random.org for providing the random number for the draw.

JazzWorks Canada has generously donated a pair of tickets (a $40 value) to Originals: a JazzWorks Showcase at the NAC Fourth Stage on Tuesday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Local jazz lovers and supporters are in for an evening of fine music at Originals: A JazzWorks Showcase. Each summer, as part of its intensive Summer Jazz Workshop, Ottawa JazzWorks holds a Composers' Symposium to help participating singers and instrumentalists develop their musical compositions in collaboration with a faculty of professional jazz musicians from Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and New York. Some of these innovative tunes will be presented in concert on May 17th at the NAC’s Fourth Stage.

"Originals: A JazzWorks Showcase" features some of the most exceptional compositions from the workshops, performed by the composers and other local musicians in collaboration with Ottawa bassist and JazzWorks Artistic Director, John Geggie and four highly accomplished members of the JazzWorks faculty: pianist Dave Restivo, trumpet player Jim Lewis and vocalist Christine Duncan, all from Toronto; and saxophonist Frank Lozano, from Montreal.

Good luck to all participants! And don't miss “Originals: a JazzWorks Showcase” on Tuesday May 17 even if you don't win.
