Huge Cap Jazz Presence at 2015 Vancouver Jazz Festival

The Vancouver International Jazz Festival is one of the largest and most important events of its kind on the planet.  I really look forward to hearing music and performing each year. In addition to bringing in top jazz artists from around the globe, the festival always does a great job of showcasing musicians and bands from the Vancouver scene and Cap graduates and faculty are always a central part of that scene.  I spent some time this morning highlighting cap students, alumni, and faculty members in my festival program.

Some rough and ready stats:

58 events at the Festival will features Cap alumni, students or faculty.
38 Cap alums or current students will perform
15 faculty members will perform

Here is a list  (apologies if I missed anyone - the program listing don't always have all personnel for bands.)
