DaysArts Presents: Jazz Affair – Wishes
February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In April 2012, the group was chosen for the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in New York where it won two prizes: the prize for best arrangement and the prize for best soloist, awarded to Marie-Pier Deschênes. Since then, Jazz Affair has taken the stage at many events and festivals, such as the Festival de Jazz de Quebec (2013), the Francofolies in Montréal (2013 and 2014), the Montréal A Cappella Festival (2013 and 2014), SuttonJazz (2016) and the Festival International des Hautes-Laurentides (2017). Coming out strong with their first album (JAM) which came out in early 2017, the group now aims to find new audiences beyond its native Quebec. Jazz Affair is now recording its second album (WISHES), which will launch in early 2019.
