Vancouver International Jazz Festival and TD celebrating 10 years of partnership
VANCOUVER, May 22, 2013 /CNW/ - This year, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival is thrilled to celebrate 10 years of partnership with TD Bank Group. Over the past decade, TD's generous support has enabled the Festival to bring thousands of the best home-grown and international artists to Vancouver while fostering the city's cultural growth and tourism.
"The Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is thrilled to have worked with a partner like TD for the last 10 years and we look forward to many more," states Executive Director, Fatima Amarshi. "TD's commitment to supporting music is unparalleled and we applaud them for playing a leading role in supporting arts and culture in Canada."
Today, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival is world renowned for its innovative and exciting programming, celebratory atmosphere and community engagement. A burgeoning and spectacular cultural event now entering its 28th season, our 11-day festival draws upwards of 560,000 people to 35 venues over 300 performances featuring 1,800 artists.
"As the Bank of Music, TD is proud to mark 10 years of support and sponsorship for the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival," said Jane Russell, Senior Vice President, TD Canada Trust. "We love music and are looking forward to joining residents and visitors to Metro Vancouver at the festival to unofficially kick-off summer with a lineup of fabulous performances!"
TD's strong commitment to music also supports festival education programs such as free public workshops and concerts, scholarships, and the TD High School Jazz Intensive, a nine-day residency for talented high school students during which they get to rehearse and perform under the tutelage of a master musician and educator.
A prime sponsor of music festivals across the country, TD is also a key supporter of the JUNO Awards, MusiCounts, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), Live Nation Canada and the Khatsahlano! Music + Art Festival. TD is also a supporter of many music-based community and education programs.
From the start, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival has offered audiences terrific musical experiences. In doing so, we've supported and nurtured the artistic work of musicians who've enriched us with their creativity. Our strong partnership ensures the festival will continue this wonderful tradition in one of the most beautiful, exciting, and dynamic cities in the world.
