The Canadian Music Centre has announced a new concert series meant to formally establish a home at the CMC for contemporary jazz composers in Canada.

The Jazz at the Centre concert series, curated by Céline Peterson, begins with a performance by Juno-winning guitarist Jocelyn Gould and Juno-nominated pianist Amanda Tosoff on Friday, Nov. 25. They’ll be backed by drummer Ethan Ardelli and bassist Jon Maharaj.

“It is a thrill and privilege for me to work with the team at the CMC in this capacity, as space is created where the work of our immensely talented jazz composers can be showcased nationally and internationally,” said Peterson. “Amanda Tosoff and Jocelyn Gould are two exceptionally talented, dedicated, and hardworking musicians and composers. The musical excellence that they embody as musicians, composers, and band leaders, is precisely what this series is about.”
