Coastal Jazz & Blues Society is dedicated to presenting live concerts and educational musical activities accessible to everyone. Since 2004, Coastal Jazz and TD Bank have partnered to present the TD High School Jazz Intensive during the annual TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival each June.
Up to 21 talented youth from the Metro Vancouver area are selected through an extensive audition process to participate in this unique music residency. Students get a professional experience through daily rehearsals, workshops with visiting International artists, complimentary concert tickets, and exposure to advanced music – culminating in the Main Stage performance at David Lam Park on the closing weekend of the Jazz Festival.
