Step back in time and immerse yourself in the vibrant jazz scene of early 20th-century Vancouver at the Roedde House Museum’s latest exhibition, “Swingin’ in the Rain: Vancouver’s Early Jazz Era.”

Curated by Rachel Lige, this exhibition delves into the bustling venues, influential figures, and cultural and social forces that shaped Vancouver’s jazz landscape during the 1910s and 1920s.

Join us for an unforgettable evening as we kick off the exhibition with a special event featuring esteemed pianist, trumpeter, and educator Alan Matheson. Alan will provide an insightful lecture on the history of early jazz, along with live performances of period tunes performed by Alan Matheson, Josh Roberts, and Noah Gotfrit.
As you enjoy the beautifully restored Victorian parlour of the Roedde House Museum, sip complimentary wine and beer, which are included with your ticket. Mingle with fellow jazz enthusiasts and soak in the rich history of Vancouver’s early jazz scene.

Please note: The music and lecture will be held on the main floor, which is accessible to everyone.
However, we regret that the exhibition is on the second floor (stairs only) and may not be accessible to all Visitors.

Special thanks to Massullo Music for the loan of instruments for the display.
