Tilson Makes Statement in the House of Commons on Orangeville’s Annual Blues and Jazz Festival
May 14, 2021
PARLIAMENT HILL – Today, David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin – Caledon rose in the House of Commons to recognize the Blues and Jazz Festival hosted by the Town of Orangeville.
“Mr. Speaker, on Friday, June 01, 2007, the Town of Orangeville will once again be the proud host of the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival. The first annual festival had its beginnings in 2003. A small group of 5 volunteers organized and operated a full-blown festival over three days.
Today, this annual event is the largest music festival of its kind north-west of Toronto, which draws extraordinary talent and some of the most acclaimed blues and jazz performers in Canada.
The festival has been immensely successful due to the outstanding talent, but also because of the tremendous efforts of the festival’s organizers, such as Larry Kurtz, Artistic Director for the festival.
I commend the efforts of Mr. Kurtz, as well as the other festival organizers and thank them for drawing such positive attention to the Town of Orangeville and to the local businesses and organizations in our community.
On behalf of the residents of Dufferin-Caledon, I wish the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival great success in its 5th season.” remarked Tilson.
