Program details


The three weekend session are:

  • Nov 2-4 St Francis Xavier University (Gilmora Hall), Antigonish (Map)
  • Jan 11-13 NSCC Waterfront Campus, Dartmouth (Map)
  • Mar 8-10 Truro Junior High School, Truro (Map)

During the Honour Jazz weekends, it is preferred that families make their own accommodation arrangements. We will always identify a local hotel that will offer a group rate to our organization. If you have friends/family in the area, that is an excellent solution.  Billeting is possible, but in limited numbers – especially in the out-of-metro locations, where we do not have the members to support a large number of billet requests. If Honour Jazz is happening in your area, it will be most appreciated if you can host billets in your home.


Still only $240.00 ($80.00 a weekend)
