TDJ Special Projects Is Looking For A Few Good Musicians
Applications are now being accepted for special jazz projects in need of marketing support
Deadline: November 30, 2012

Toronto - Designed to encourage the creation, development and presentation of special projects by local jazz musicians, the TDJ Special Projects Initiative is now accepting submissions until November 30, 2012. Entering its third year, the Initiative provides successful applicants with marketing and public relations support, including a bursary, from Toronto Downtown Jazz (TDJ) and JAZZ.FM91.
"We're pleased to be supporting some of the outstanding jazz musicians who call Toronto home" states Artistic Director, Josh Grossman. "Promoting an event is a big job and can be time-consuming for an independent musician - especially when preparing for a big show. With the TDJ Special Projects we're excited to be promoting the events, and hopefully we're providing each musician with more time to concentrate on his or her project."
Eligible projects must take place between February 1 and April 30, 2013 and they must fall outside of the usual scope of an artist's work. Individual musicians and ensembles of any size are encouraged to apply; however, leaders must be active members of the Toronto jazz scene. All applications will be evaluated through a juried process, with the three successful projects announced in the new year.
Past participants have included Fern Lindzon, Ernesto Cervini, the Barry Elmes Quintet, the In the Current Ensemble, the Andrew Downing / John Southworth collaboration Easterween, Tova Kardonne and Barnyard Records.
