The NOLA Jazz & Heritage Foundation is about to celebrate female musicians from across the city.
Chanteuse: Celebrating New Orleans Women in Music is a new summer concert series about to take over the Jazz & Heritage Center.
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation is a non-profit working to promote, preserve, perpetuate and encourage the music, culture and heritage of communities in Louisiana through festivals, programs. Known for their iconic Jazz Fest, Chanteuse is focusing on the ladies of music only, boasting an incredible line-up.
Starting on Saturday, May 29, the concert series will continue every Saturday until July 3. Kicking things off with an outdoor performance is Meschiya Lake & the Little Big Horns. Other acts to take the stage include Caren Green, Maggie Koerner, and Dee Dee Bridgewater.
The best thing about the whole concert series is that it’s completely free, although you do have to register and reserve your tickets.
You can reserve your tickets here, but don’t worry if you’re unable to attend. 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.
So reserve your tickets, and head to Chanteuse this weekend, and every weekend after! The event will be taking place at he George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center, located at 1225 N Rampart St.
