Thank you to everyone who came out to see our 2016 Emerging Artists perform!

The 2017 Emerging Artist Showcase will be run through the Jazz Sudbury Facebook page.

The 2017 Emerging Artist Showcase will open February 17, 2017 and will run until April 31, 2017. As a jazz group or single performer from anywhere in Ontario, all you have to do is enter a video and you can win one of three $500 paid performance prizes and the $1000 grand prize and the opportunity to perform on the main stage at the Jazz Sudbury Festival.

Jazz bands must upload a three to five-minute video to the Jazz Sudbury Facebook page showcasing their best chops. The videos will be initially judged by panel of jazz industry professionals. The judges will narrow the submissions until Sudbury's next jazz star is selected!
