Jazzeast’s mandate runs from the promotion and presentation of the annual TD Halifax Jazz Festival, to soft-seat concerts, club shows and educational workshops (such as the renowned Creative Music Workshop).  We develop opportunities for amateur musicians, established local artists and the local "jazz aristocracy".  We bring renowned performers from many parts of the world to a city that doesn't always find itself naturally on the maps for touring artists. In brief, we think jazz is important to the culture which we'd like to have, and we want to make sure that kind of culture is strong in Halifax, where we love to live.
