In March 2020, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation's "Chanteuse: Celebrating New Orleans Women in Music" concert series was cut short as New Orleans locked down. Now, the series continues with their first in-person events since that time!
Starting May 29, Chanteuse: Celebrating New Orleans Women in Music returns. This six-week concert series features new talents alongside NEA Jazz Master, triple Grammy Winning and Tony Award Winning, UN Ambassador Dee Dee Bridgewater. Six concerts will be held over the course of six weeks at the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center. Chanteuse is part of an ongoing effort by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation to address inequities in the music industry.
All Chanteuse concerts will take place in the outdoor space at the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center, 1225 N. Rampart St. New Orleans. Safety protocols can be reviewed at https://www.jazzandheritage.org/chanteuse.
Doors will open at 6pm prior to the start of the performance or program.
Admission is free to all six concerts, but attendees must RSVP using this link to reserve your ticket(s). WWOZ will be video streaming the sets from Meschiya Lake & the Little Big Horns (May 29), Anjelika "Jelly" Joseph (June 19), and Dee Dee Bridgewater (July 3) at wwoz.org and our Facebook page.
