NEW ORLEANS, LA -- Are you craving to watch a Jazz ensemble but can't leave your house?

The New Orleans Jazz Museum is collaborating with The Jazz Foundation of America to present an 'All-Star Jazz Ensemble' performance every Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m., starting from July 28, 2021.

The New Orleans Jazz Museum

The New Orleans Jazz Museum is located at 400 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70116 at the intersection of the French Quarter and the Frenchmen Street live music corridor, in the heart of the city's music scene. The Museum uses the space for evening programs, small group concerts, and special events.

The New Orleans Jazz Museum's mission is to provide education and a global understanding of the history and journey of jazz music, as one of the most innovative and historically crucial musical art forms in world history. The museum is working together with various institutions to present the most updated and relevant exhibitions, events, and programs by doing partnerships with local, national, and international educational institutions.

Jazz Foundation of America

Founded in 1989, the Jazz Foundation of America in New York was established by Dr. Billy Taylor, Phoebe Jacobs, Ann Ruckert, Cy Blank, and Herb Storfer.

The Foundation conducted the first fundraising event for the Jazz Musicians' Emergency Fund in 1991, titled "The Fine Art of Jazz," which was staged in cooperation with The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Stuart Davis Centennial Retrospective, and raised more than $60,000.

Until now, JFA has provided lodgings, work, and more than $250,000 in donated top-of-the-line equipment to over 1,000 New Orleans musicians.

The performance can be watched online via NOLA Jazz Museum Facebook Live. Enjoy this delicate performance from home with your loved ones to embrace the lovely strains of jazz music that will color your day.
