Description

Ascension's Jazz & Chamber Series is back this year for a second season of wonderful music and performance. Our 2017-18 concerts will feature some beloved artists from the previous season, as well as new performers who we're excited to be introducing at the church for the first time.

With the Season Pass, you can enjoy all seven concerts in the series at a discounted price. Simply arrive at the concerts with identification, and you'll be good to go. A Pick-3 Pass is also available. Your ticket includes sweets and savouries, coffee and tea, or purchase a glass of wine or craft beer.

We hope that you'll join us in enjoying the splendours of jazz and chamber music this year.
