Due to COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the City of Toronto to limit the gathering of large crowds to helps stop the spread of the virus, this year’s jazz festival is taking place online until July 26. The virtual festival, which opened on July 17, features a variety of free streamed musical performances, lectures and discussions.
