The Preservation Hall Junior Jazz Band to Appear on WWOZ’s Cuttin’ Class Series
For over 30 years WWOZ has put New Orleans music, past and present, on the airwaves. Now they are looking to the future by showcasing Nola’s newest crop of young musicians. Together with Coventry Health Care of Louisiana, WWOZ is thrilled to present Cuttin’ Class – a series of live in-studio performances by middle and high school age students from the Greater New Orleans area.
Each Cuttin’ Class presentation brings young Nola musicians to the studio to give them the chance to perform on live radio. The show hosts sits down with the band leaders to talk about the band, what it’s like to be young musician, and about the music education opportunities in New Orleans. The future is in our hands, and we want to give it all the encouragement and support we can. The schools and organizations bringing bands to Cuttin’ Class are doing just that: making sure that New Orleans music is a passed on down through the generations.
The Preservation Hall Junior Jazz Band is honored and thrilled to be a part of this music series. Tune into WWOZ 90.7 on Tuesday, April 2nd at 10:00am to catch our fine young talents perform Traditional New Orleans Jazz! Don’t live in New Orleans, no problem!
