May 30, 2024

The historic CN Train Station in Fort Langley is a popular place on a nice summer day but will be much busier with young performers who are part of the Fort Langley Jazz and Arts Festival.

The festival’s youth showcase series run Sundays at 1 p.m. between May 26 and July 14, while the Rising Star award winners perform for the public at July shows.

“The Fort Langley Jazz and Arts Festival is committed to creating spaces for local youth to showcase their talent, connect with new fans, and advance their skills in jazz,” said Dave Quinn, Festival artistic director and co-founder. “Through this music series, we’re creating a platform for young and emerging jazz musicians to shine.”

The festival will kick off a new eight-week summer youth jazz series with a concert by the Langley Fine Arts School junior and senior jazz ensembles.

The concerts are free and will include art exhibits showcasing the work of local artists and guided tours of the restored CNR train station that dates back to 1915.
