Weekly Meeting - Ottawa Jazz Festival

July 16 Meeting

Thank you to Richard Munro for Chairing his 1st meeting - he performed like a natural. John Thompson spoke on his personal experiences as a volunteer with the Ottawa Jazz Festival that is in its 19th year in Ottawa. He explained that jazz originated when the Acadians were expelled from Nova Scotia and went to Louisiana, where the lack of social barriers for jazz musicians flourished. With Jazz musicians, “anything goes”!
