Music in the Schools workshops
COVID-19 Update: We are now booking Master Classes virtually! See below!
We are Doreen's Jazz New Orleans. A truly authentic, show stopping traditional jazz band that has thrilled millions around the world from children to Dignitaries to U.S. Presidents. We have taken our show on the road and have toured many of the fifty states, as well as internationally. We are not only putting on show stopping concerts but also visiting schools, Nursing Holmes and universities raising uplifting, positive awareness of New Orleans, it’s music and its culture. We have designed a program that not only describes the cultural gumbo of New Orleans, but also examines the many types of music that has developed in this great city.
Our mission is to educate through interacting with our audiences. The workshops are jam packed with information through demonstration of Jazz Funerals, Mardi Gras Indian chants, and the origins of the traditional music from Camp Meetings and spirituals through the French, Latin and Caribbean influences on today's Funky Traditional and Street Jazz. We have recently finished a multi city tour of Elementary through High Schools and Universities that had the audiences on their feet singing and marching around. Many attended multiple shows and raved about their Doreen's Jazz New Orleans show experience. We have also designed programs for special needs children, adults and the elderly.
