Mackenzie Hall Jazz

Windsor Jazz Concert Series (WJCS) is a non-profit corporation registered in Ontario, promoting professional “jazz-in-concert” in Windsor starting in 2022.  The new organization is built on the various series Windsor promoter Hugh Leal has been operating independently since 1976.  His ongoing string of concerts since that time have proven to be the longest-running jazz concert series in Canadian history.  Leal’s productions have always focused on presenting quality, including musicians who are recipients of the Order of Canada, Juno Award and Grammy Award winners.  Many internationally recognized artists from the major US jazz cities have been featured, with a special emphasis on Detroit’s great jazz players.

Mackenzie Hall is the City of Windsor’s arts and cultural centre in a restored 1856 former courthouse anchoring the historic Old Sandwich Town neighbourhood.  WJCS operates Mackenzie Hall Jazz as their Mainstage Series.  Concerts are held several times a year in the 200 seat Court Auditorium offering excellent acoustics, lighting, staging and a fine Yamaha grand piano.  It is Windsor’s best venue to experience classic acoustic jazz in an intimate setting.

The Friends of the Court are the volunteer group supporting improvements for Mackenzie Hall.  The Friends fundraise with baked goods and refreshments at intermissions of the jazz concerts, creating a cordial get-together of music lovers.

Tickets for the series are available from the Mackenzie Hall box office.
