In just 8 days there will be a massive concert event at Third Ave. Internationally acclaimed jazz aritst Carol Welsman celebrates the launch of her brand new album "Journey" from the stage located in the concert hall at 304 3rd.
Welsman has captivated audiences around the world with her expressive vocal styling and dynamic stage presence. She has sold over 60,000 CDs in Canada alone, something few jazz artists in Canada have experienced.
“We are excited and honoured to present Carol Welsman in concert. She is one of the best jazz artists in the world,” says Third Avenue Centre Artist Director Mark Turner. “Saskatoon is Carol’s first performance following the release of her brand new album, Journey. It is a concert and a celebration,” explains Turner.
The Welsman concert is a fund raising event for Third Ave Centre for Community Enrichment, a newly established non-profit organization. Its vision is to establish Third Avenue United Church as a premium cultural venue in Saskatoon. The Centre operates independently from the Church and promotes the space for concerts and community events to raise funds. Proceeds will be directed toward building facility upgrades and sustainability.“Third Ave, as it is commonly called in Saskatoon, is a cornerstone of culutral and community events for the city. As we enter the centennial year of the building, our organization will work to ensure the building’s existence and significance in the heart of Saskatoon,” says Angela Kempf, Chair, Board of Directors, Third Avenue Centre.
Turner encourages people to purchase tickets and experience an inspirational performance in a beautiful concert venue. In his own words, “Carol’s performance will blow everyone away.”
