Jazz Win­nipeg is thrilled to unveil the first wave of pro­gram­ming for the 2022 TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val, June 14 – 19, 2022 in Win­nipeg, Manitoba.


Kick­ing off the fes­ti­val on Tues­day, June 14 and Wednes­day, June 15 is an immer­sive mul­ti­stage con­cert event at the Cana­di­an Muse­um for Human Rights fea­tur­ing major inter­na­tion­al jazz artists. The two-day event will fea­ture sev­er­al stages and a diverse line-up of musi­cal tal­ent, includ­ing con­certs from head­lin­ers, the soul-filled Ms. Lisa Fis­ch­er and Grand Baton, pre­mier jazz pianist Renee Rosnes, unique­ly cap­ti­vat­ing singer and com­pos­er René Marie with pianist Dawn Clement, and super­star tenor sax­o­phon­ist Melis­sa Aldana.

The CMHR line-up is round­ed out by con­certs from NPR’s 2018 Tiny Desk Con­test win­ner Naia Izu­mi, Bokan­té alum turned solo star Mali­ka Tirolien, Cana­di­an mod­ern jazz trio Ernesto Cervini’s Tetra­he­dron, the jazz, pop, and musi­cal the­ater-influ­enced work of Spencer Day, and Ukrain­ian (and new Mon­tréaler) sax­o­phon­ist Bog­dan Gumenyuk.

We are thrilled to be return­ing to the Cana­di­an Muse­um for Human Rights to present the first two days of gala pro­gram­ming for the 2022 TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val. The Museum’s poignant mes­sages of equal­i­ty and hope under­line our goals for the fest’s return and for audi­ences who’ll be join­ing us in June. This is a cel­e­bra­tion,” said Angela Heck, Jazz Winnipeg’s Exec­u­tive Director.

We’re excit­ed to present a wide range of inter­na­tion­al musi­cal tal­ent, from icon­ic Cana­di­an pianist Renee Rosnes and super­star Chilean sax­o­phon­ist Melis­sa Aldana to the tran­scen­dent soul styles of Ms. Lisa Fis­ch­er and Grand Baton. This year’s CMHR line-up rep­re­sents a focus on world-class women musi­cians and the joy of dis­cov­er­ing new music, which includes return­ing to the inim­itable expe­ri­ence of attend­ing live performances.”

In addi­tion to gala pro­gram­ming at the Cana­di­an Muse­um for Human Rights on June 14 and 15, con­certs at club venues and free pro­gram­ming at The Cube Stage in Old Mar­ket Square, hap­pen­ing through June 19, will be announced in the com­ing weeks.
