Sound of Jazz Concert Series

For more than 45 years, the Sound of Jazz Concert Series has entertained thousands of concert goers of all ages with a rich spectrum of jazz, and each concert is captured live for rebroadcast on JAZZ.FM91’s Sound of Jazz program. 

The 45th season of the Sound of Jazz Concert Series features six special concerts taking place between October 2021 and March 2022 in the Long & McQuade Performance Hall at the JAZZ.FM91 studios.

“The 45th Sound of Jazz Concert Series season is an exciting milestone for us,” said Dana Wigle, General Manager of JAZZ.FM91. “This year is special because thanks to the support of our partners at Don Valley North Lexus, the Sound of Jazz Concert Series is accessible to everyone.”

Audiences from across the globe will be able to hear each concert LIVE on the air and see them online via a live stream on JAZZ.FM91’s Facebook page. As with all Sound of Jazz concerts, the performances will also be archived for an upcoming episode of our weekly Sound of Jazz program on Sundays at 4 p.m. ET.
