Join us at THE JAZZ ROOM for our Jazz Workshop Series!

  The Grand River Jazz Society is offering a series of sponsored workshops led by celebrated jazz musicians.  These events will include a lecture/demo component geared to complement the evening show.  In addition to the insights and examples of technique, participants may have an opportunity to play along with the visiting professionals leading the workshops right on stage at THE JAZZ ROOM in Waterloo!

Q.  When and where are the workshops?
A.   The workshops are held on the stage of The Jazz Room in the Huether Hotel at 59 King St. North in Waterloo, Ontario.  The workshops are held on selected Saturday afternoons from 4-5:30 pm and are followed by dinner jazz and an evening show.  For our full schedule, see
