We're pleased to welcome the Loyola Jazz Band into our studio on Thursday, December 8 at 5p during Jazz From the French Market. The students in the Jazz Studies program at Loyola's College of Music's performance will be facilitated by Loyola faculty member David Torkanowsky. The Loyola jazz bands offer musicians an opportunity to perform music in the popular and jazz idioms along with study of arranging and techniques of improvisation.

Loyola University has the oldest jazz program in the city of New Orleans. New Orleans is the birthplace of this great American art form and also fosters and maintains a very active jazz performance scene. Loyola University Jazz Faculty are selected from the finest musicians New Orleans has to offer. The faculty is extremely active in the local, national, and international jazz venues.  The degree program features studies in improvisation, composition, arranging, history, theory, and music industry. Students have the opportunity to perform in Jazz Ensembles and Combos. There are also many performances available in the City of New Orleans. Quite a few of Loyola Jazz Majors become active contributors to the musical fabric of the city. There are also many famous Alumni of the program including Ellis Marsalis, Victor Goines and Rick Margitza.
