Beverly Glenn Copeland will perform at the CHMR for jazz fest's 30th anniverary celebrations June 18.

Headliners include American jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, saxophone ensemble Joshua Redman Quartet, composer and drummer Brian Blade & the Fellowship Band, Laila Biali, the Canadian singer and host of CBC’s Saturday Night Jazz, and composer Beverly Glenn-Copeland.

Local artists involved include Erin Propp and Larry Roy, the Sean Irvine Quintet, Trío Telfær, Civvie, Mike Manny and Micaylee Rodyniuk.

"I’m tremendously excited for this concert. We’re going to share an unprecedented concert experience with Winnipeggers, while also re-imagining the museum experience for our venerable new institution," said Mike Falk, jazz fest’s artistic director, in a news release about the event.

"The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a beautiful, remarkable building full of architectural metaphor and important human stories. Jazz has a long history of being at the centre of conversations around rights and responsibilities, and its voice as a beacon for a social conscience has been particularly renewed in recent years."

In addition to the live music, concert-goers will have the opportunity to experience "intimate talks" with the performers, who will share their stories that relate to human rights. There will also be a tribute to Izzy Asper, paying respect to both his involvement in the creation of the museum and as founder of the jazz festival.

There are a few types of tickets for this event; a general admission ticket is $100, $125 to get guaranteed seats in Bonnie and John Buhler Hall, $150 if purchased at the door (if any are available) and $90 for students. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 1, at 10 a.m. at Ticketfly.com, or in person at the Jazz Winnipeg office at 007-100 Arthur St.

The Winnipeg International Jazz Festival runs June 18-23.
