THE 2022 BRANDON JAZZ FESTIVAL HAS BEEN CANCELLED!
IT IS WITH HEAVY HEARTS THAT WE ANNOUNCE THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A 2022 BRANDON JAZZ FESTIVAL. THE BOARD HAVE AGREED THAT THERE IS TOO MUCH UNCERTAINTY ABOUT WHAT RESTRICTIONS MAY OR MAY NOT BE IN PLACE IN THE NEW YEAR AND WHAT SCHOOL BOARDS WILL AND WILL NOT ALLOW FOR TRIPS. FOR US TO UNDERTAKE THE PLANNING OF AN EVENT THAT MANY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND OR THAT WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD IS NOT FEASIBLE AT THIS TIME.
WE WILL BE REFUNDING ALL OF THE REGISTRATIONS THAT GROUPS HAVE BANKED WITH THE BJF FROM 2020 AND I WILL BE IN CONTACT WITH ALL OF THESE DIRECTORS WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO TO FACILITATE THIS.
PLEASE KNOW THAT WE ARE AS DISAPPOINTED AS ALL OF YOU TO HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THIS BUT FEEL IT IS THE ONLY PRUDENT DECISION TO BE MAKING AT THIS TIME.
ALSO, WE HAVE PROGRAMS FOR EVERY JAZZ FESTIVAL SINCE IT’S INCEPTION IN 1983 EXCEPT FOR 2010 AND WONDERED IF ANY DIRECTOR OUT THERE HAS ONE THAT THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO PART WITH. IT’S THE YEAR WE FEATURED PILOTO AND KLIMAX FROM CUBA. PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL IF YOU HAVE ONE FOR US.
WE HOPE DIRECTORS AND STUDENTS ALIKE ALL STAY WELL AND THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE MUSIC AS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW.
BRENT CAMPBELL, DIRECTOR
