It is with great sadness the Ottawa Jazz Festival is CANCELLING this show due to illness. Tickets for this show will be automatically refunded in two to three business days. For patrons who purchased tickets at the office, we will handle your refunds directly. A note from Jerry Granelli explaining the situation follows:
Hello dear friends in Ottawa,
I was looking forward to joining you all again for the celebration of life, family and the joy that Charlie Brown has somehow come to mean for us all. Two months ago I contracted pneumonia, and I thought I had it beat, unfortunately, a recent visit to my doctor has shown that it is back. To make sure I get better, I have to check into the hospital this week and cannot leave Halifax. Therefore, I will not be able to make it to Ottawa this year, not if I want to get better for 2018.
So to all, I would like to say that I hope to see you next time and as the children shout at the end of the concert - MERRY CHRISTMAS!
