The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation presents a Jazz Journey concert featuring the legendary song stylist Rene Marie, along with three of New Orleans' greatest female jazz singers: Germaine Bazzle, Stephanie Jordan and Betty Shirley.
The concert takes place on Friday, Jan. 13, at Dillard University's Lawless Memorial Chapel. Admission is free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts promptly at 7:00 p.m.
The Foundation's Jazz Journey concert series brings many luminaries in modern jazz to New Orleans for unique performances. Over the years the series has presented a who's who of jazz, from Ahmad Jamal to Wallace Roney. The Foundation frequently partners with others, such as the Contemporary Arts Center and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz to stage free concerts of high-profile performers. It's all part of our mission to promote the music and culture of jazz while giving back to the community. See our schedule of events for upcoming Jazz Journey concerts.
