Parlour Jazz Series featuring Bill Coon (guitar) and Cameron Wilson (violin)
Roedde House Museum’s Jazz Series has gone online for the first time! Our monthly jazz concerts, always hosted in our historic 1893 parlour, have been on hold since COVID, but thanks to a Community Arts Grant from the City of Vancouver and donations from our jazz fans, we are able to get the series going again with online concerts for the remainder of the year. To help support our local artists and keep the series going into next year, you can donate here: https://my.charitableimpact.com/send/to/charity/roedde-house-preservation-society/gift/new
This concert was filmed in early November before British Columbia’s health officials announced COVID restrictions asking people to stay within their households.
This concert features Bill Coon on guitar and Cameron Wilson on violin.
Sit back and enjoy this recording done from our Victorian parlour!
