Welcome to the Toowoomba Jazz Society

SPECIAL PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE RE CORONAVIRUS – 17 MARCH 2020

The committee met last night to discuss the impact the coronavirus could have on our members.

It was the unanimous decision of the committee that jazz nights be postponed at this stage until Friday 12 June 2020.  Whilst it may be a difficult decision, health experts around the world are in agreement that the best way to slow the transmission of the virus is for people to practice social distancing.  Unfortunately that is not possible on jazz nights.   Given that many of our members fall into the high risk category we felt it our duty of care to our members, their families and the wider community to take this action.  

The decision to postpone jazz nights was not taken lightly but we believe all members and musicians will agree that the health and safety of our members and those who attend the functions is our highest priority.

We have had just an amazing start to this year with every gig being a great success and the committee were looking forward to continuing to bring you good jazz over the coming months.   It is sincerely hoped that come June 2020 life will be back to normal and we can all meet up again at the North Toowoomba Bowls Club to enjoy a night of jazz.

Should circumstances change in the coming weeks I will be back in touch with an update – otherwise – see you on 12 June 2020 when we will be entertained by well known local group – On Ya Bike.
