Our second spring concert is in a new venue – Rouge River Brewing!

To create a new experience for our jazz fans, we have arranged to hold our second community-based concert of 2018 at the Rouge River Brewing Co. – Markham’s first and only craft brewery. And, it’s a great spot for music!

  • Sunday, March 25 – 4 to 6 p.m. (Note the time change!)

  • Rouge River Brewery, 50 Bullock Drive, Unit 8, Markham

Brewmaster Jordan Mills and his partners offer a rotating selection of seasonal beers for tasting, sale and consumption on premises. Jordan is the first Canadian to earn the coveted Advanced Cicerone brewer’s designation. Learn more at

Our featured artist is flute phenom and multi-instrumentalist Anh Phung. Anh earned a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance from McGill University in 2012 and has continued to tour, perform and record in several different genres and areas. Anh has won numerous awards throughout her career, notably first place at the Canadian Music Competition and the Galaxy Rising Star Award for two consecutive years at MusicFest Canada. She continues to write, perform as a studio musician and tour with her latest project, HaiRbraIN.

About the venue

Parking – In addition to a few spots in front of the brewery, there is a large parking area in back.
Food – Patrons can order Rouge River’s charcuterie board or from the pop-up food experience “That Sangweech Truck.” The brewery also allows customers to bring their own snacks.
Beverages – Rouge River has a selection of award-winning beers on tap; red and white wine will also be available
Timing – Instead of our usual time, this event runs from 4 to 6 p.m. The brewery opens at noon, and its house band performs from 2 to 3:30 that day, so come early for a full afternoon of great music! Shortly before 4 p.m. anyone without a ticket will be asked to buy one (if available) or exit when the show starts.

Local and international artists deliver over 30 open-air performances during the weekend as well as in selected “hot spots” and at a ticketed opening-night concert.
