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.
