The Meaford Hall presents Swingin’ With Oscar, Thursday November 9th at the Meaford Hall at 8 pm.
Born in Montreal in 1925 in the working-class neighbourhood of Little Burgundy, Oscar Peterson became one of the most important pianist in the entire history of Jazz. As accompanist to the greatest jazz vocalists of all time, including Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, and as a recording artist, recognition of his talent quickly spread far and beyond his hometown. The Remi Bloduc Jazz Ensemble pays tribute to Canada’s very own Oscar Peterson in Swingin’ With Oscar.
Tickets start at $40 and are available online at MeafordHall.ca or by visiting the Box Office at 12 Nelson Street East, Meaford.
