Montreal vibraphonist François Stevenson will join the Ottawa Jazz Orchestra, as part of a 15-piece ensemble, to perform Dameron’s music in the second half of the programme while the first half will pay tribute to vibraphonist Milt Jackson with Stevenson performing in smaller ensembles with OJO musicians.

Don’t miss this sumptuous musical feast with a dash of Dameron and a measure of Milt!
