Concert with the New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band

In advance of Mardi Gras, the New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band takes the
stage for an afternoon concert inspired by the exhibition New Orleans
Second Line Parades. The Los Angeles-based band includes members from New
Orleans who will pause throughout their performance to discuss the history
of American music since 1803 (the year of the Louisiana Purchase) and
leading up to the Swing Era.

Fowler Families presents Little Mardi Gras with the New Orleans Traditional
Jazz Band

children of all ages from 2–4pm.

This exhibition of 40 color portraits by Louisiana-born photographer

Second Lines.
