Musicians invited to perform at the 2015 Pender Harbour Jazz Festival will be contacted by the last week of March ~ first week of April. We apologize for the delay.



You will only be notified if you are selected to perform at the 2015 Festival. There are just too many submissions to confirm receipt of materials, etc.

Thank you – PHJAZZ Artistic Director
