The London Jazz Society is a non-profit society based in London, Ontario Canada that promotes jazz music by presenting live concerts, jazz radio programs and promotional materials covering local, regional and international jazz related activities. Membership in the London Jazz Society is open to all those who would like to show their support for jazz music. Non-members can also support the London Jazz Society by attending concerts and or donating to our endowment fund that is very much needed by students of the Faculty of Music, University of Western Ontario.
By joining the London Jazz Society through our low annual fee you will be entitled to discounts at many of our concerts and you will be invited to join us for discount bus tours to jazz festivals in Toronto, Detroit and other destinations within a comfortable driving distance of London, Ontario. In addition to that you will receive, by mail, our informative newsletter that highlights upcoming events and activities of interest to jazz enthusiasts.
Our regular monthly concerts are held at the Mocha Shrine through the kind cooperation of the Shriners of London, Canada. It is located at 468 Colborne Street and there is lots of free parking. Concerts are held on Sunday afternoons from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the specific day and time is announced in our newsletter, on this website, through our radio programs and quite often via an article in the London Free Press. The London Jazz Society may also help to promote events organized by jazz musicians at other locations most notably the Wolf Performance Hall located at the new Central Library at 251 Dundas Street in downtown London. In addition to that the Society may promote selected events at local nightclubs.
Membership in the London Jazz Society is for one year and is a bargain compared to other similar organizations, but a little can go a long way we make the best use of it.
