The TDJ News Corps
Toronto Downtown Jazz (TDJ), producers of the annual TD Toronto Jazz Festival, announces the second annual TDJ News Corps, an initiative geared towards post-secondary students who are interested in writing about jazz. Successful applicants to the TDJ News Corps program will be given full media accreditation for the festival, granting them unprecedented access to the festival – attending and reviewing concerts for free, interviewing artists and experiencing the festival from behind the scenes. In addition, TDJ News Corps members are assigned a mentor – an experienced music journalist.
Check this page during the festival as the TDJ News Corps members post their articles – concert reviews, artist interviews and other editorial content.
