The TD Toronto Jazz Festival begins virtually this Friday, July 3.

The festival will be bringing you a weekly concert series that will broadcast live from the Jazz.FM91 studios, this summer.

It will run from July 3 to August 28. Weekly performances will air every Friday from 5 pm to 6 pm.

The festival will feature “some of the most outstanding and sought-after musicians in the city – local legends and leading lights of Toronto’s jazz scene.”

The mandate of the festival has always been to provide opportunities to local musicians.

The festival has recognized how difficult it has been for musicians to earn a living with the cancellation of live music events.

They have said that they will be offering ways to support musicians, from now until the spring of next year.

“Over the nine weeks, you’ll hear multiple generations of musicians, from internationally acclaimed veterans to emerging artists – outstanding instrumentalists and vocalists whose music includes bebop, Cuban, Caribbean, blues and soul traditions,” said Artistic Director, Josh Grossman.

Here is the official line up for the TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series:
