Jazz notable Delfeayo Marsalis — and his trombone — will be crossing the Causeway to perform with the Big Easy Award-winning St. Timothy Choir. Christmas on the Northshore is a “collaborative arts project” for north shore musicians, and Marsalis will join them for one performance on Dec. 15 in Mandeville.
As a member of New Orleans’ illustrious and prolific first family of jazz — the Marsalis family – the trombonist, composer and producer will be a prominent part of Sunday night’s ensemble as he accompanies the choir. After the performance, a collection will be taken to benefit the Danielle Inn, a home for unwed expectant mothers located in Mandeville.
Come out to Holiday on the Boulevard this weekend at the Ashe Cultural Arts Center. The Uptown Jazz Orchestra will close out this year’s event Sunday evening at 6:30pm. See the full schedule below.
