The TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival is pleased to present multi-JUNO Award nominee and winner Hilario Duran as the featured artist for the 2022 Festival's Kick Off Event and we invite you all to buy a ticket for the first Winspear Centre performance by the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra.

Internationally recognized as a jazz pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader of the highest regard, the Cuban-Canadian Hilario Duran has been based in Toronto for the past two decades, but his musical heart and soul have remained closely connected to the land of his birth.

In striving to provide opportunities for Edmonton-based musicians to showcase their talent and further their growth as a musician through professional development, the Edmonton Jazz Festival Society created the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra (EJO). The EJO is a 17-piece, large jazz ensemble, consisting of a rotating roaster of musicians selected by the EJFS Artistic Director, Kent Sangster. The group performs throughout the year as a stand-alone band as well as in presentations featuring guest musicians, composers, and/or conductors.
