Women and Jazz Symposium

Join us as we honor St. Cecilia Day with a symposium on Women and Jazz. In New Orleans, music always acknowledged its feminine side: from the arrival of the Ursuline nuns and their choral traditions, through traveling 19th century European sopranos who amazed concert-goers, through Creole folk songs, to glorious gospel, to the blues, and to the women who made jazz great. This lecture, with ample audio and video highlights of performers, surveys three centuries of performing women and the music they made in our city. Tulane professor Carloyn Kolb is the guest presenter.
