The Orangeville Jazz Society is proof that large community music events like the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival promote and foster the development of music at the local level. The Society was formed 5 years ago, after local jazz musicians found themselves often on stage at the OBJF with like minded individuals. The idea that there should be a forum within which they can develop and nurture their skills was born. Under the direction of local jazz virtuoso Ryan Grist, the group’s songbook includes jazz standards, vocal stylings and original material from in-house arranger Cam Millar.
