International Jazz Day

...is today! Live and taped concerts streamed from Congo Square, New Orleans are available to watch here. Congo Square is the birthplace of jazz where a diversity of styles came together near the turn of the twentieth century and amalgamated into the art form we currently know as jazz, America's indigenous classical music. This special day is being celebrated worldwide by concerts and events honoring this beloved music. Today in New Orleans a star-studded lineup of artists will be featured throughout the day in a monumental jazz festival the world can watch online. Don't miss your chance to participate by sharing the link above and enjoying the music! Thank you for your ongoing support of this magnificent art form!
