The New Orleans Jazz Museum has announced its 5th Annual Improvisations Gala will take place on Saturday, December 3 at the museum's landmark location, 400 Esplanade Avenue. The Annual Gala is a ticketed event, set to run from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., with the event's exclusive Patron's Party kicking off an hour earlier at 7 p.m.

The Museum

The New Orleans Jazz Museum is a special site of Big Easy culture and preservation, located right on the edge of the city's historic French Quarter. Looking not only at the past, but also into the future, the Jazz Museum aims to continue and foster the legacy of jazz music in a way that can only be done from the place it was born.

With a host of visual exhibitions, educational programs, and immersive performance opportunities, the New Orleans Jazz Museum does a lot to keep the musical spirit of the city alive. Its Annual Improvisations Gala donates all funds directly to the museum and its ongoing efforts to remember, teach, and research the art of jazz in its birthplace.

The Jazz Museum is open at 400 Esplanade Avenue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Sundays. For more information on exhibitions and admission, visit the website here.
