Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Creole Christmas
Celebrate the season as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band returns with A Creole Christmas concert,
Join us as the band performs New Orleans classics as well as some of our best-loved holiday selections – with at twist!
At a moment when musical streams are crossing with unprecedented frequency, it’s crucial to remember that throughout its history, New Orleans has been the point at which sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, and resurface, transformed by the Crescent City’s inimitable spirit and joie de vivre. Nowhere is that idea more vividly embodied than in the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history.
