Belleville Jazz Festival Launch Event
June 16 @ 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM$20.00
Jazz Festival organizer, Howard Rees, a Toronto-born, New York-trained jazz pianist with deep ties to Bay of Quinte Country, reached out to the City of Belleville, Bay of Quinte Tourism, the Quinte Arts Council, and the Belleville BIA who embraced his vision with enthusiasm. Based on earlier success directing festivals in the Distillery District of Toronto, and a vocal jazz collaboration with the Hastings Prince Edward School Board in 2019, Howard felt the time was right. The public is welcome to the launch of the first Belleville Jazz Festival with artist line-up announcements, chats with dignitaries, hors d’oeuvres, wine tasting, and an auction for a ten-person Gold Medal wine-tasting experience at Karlo Estates. Entertainment will be provided by the Howard Rees Trio: Howard on piano, Paco Luviano on the upright bass, and Harry Ellis on drums, with guest appearances by other festival performers. Tickets will be available at the door.
