Preservation Hall Jazz Band 60th Anniversary

Pass It On 60th Anniversary Musical Celebration

Tuesday, November 1, 2022 7:00PM | Merrill Auditorium

Celebrate 60 years of jazz with the revered Preservation Hall Jazz Band. On their anniversary nationwide tour, the band’s mission remains focused on welcoming audiences into the ineffable, almost religious experience of channeling the artists’ ancestors through the music and culture they’ve inherited from them. The incredible intergenerational ensemble springs from New Orleans’ Preservation Hall, a humble, much-loved room dedicated to keeping the past and future of jazz alive. It’s a well-worn, well-loved space that’s physically small but spiritually huge where people from around the globe make pilgrimages to experience jazz at its heart.
