In Case You Missed It…..Videos from Carnegie Hall
This past weekend, we brought our students from the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz Band to perform for Preservation Hall’s 50th Anniversary Celebration at Carnegie Hall. The weekend was filled with rehearsals with bands and musicians such as the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Del McCoury Band, and Ed Helms, and we sure did have a great time while doing it all!
The Preservation Hall Junior Jazz Band performed on the finale with The Blind Boys, the Del McCoury Band, Ed Helms, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on the song “I’ll Fly Away.” The entirety of the performers came out and cheered on the kids to this sold out concert. After a standing ovation, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Junior Jazz Band came out to perform on last tune on “When the Saints Go Marching In.” While cameras weren’t allowed, we did have some bold people who took some incredible footage of this memorable night. We hope you enjoy it!
A big thanks to our Preservation Hall family and all those who attended. We can’t wait to continue to teach our students so they can continue to make music and become the future of New Orleans music.
