The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra at the Jazz Market

A great orchestra for two unforgettable nights

The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra was founded in 2002 with the aim of celebrating and breathing new life into the extraordinary American jazz repertoire as well as the New Orleans jazz industry. Led by Artistic Director Adonis Rose, this large 20-piece band offers a constantly evolving repertoire that illustrates the influence that jazz has had on all modern American music. NOJO has performed in all major American concert halls and clubs. The band also won a Grammy Award in 2009 for their album Book One.

The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra will give two concerts, both on the second weekend of the festival: On Friday, June 30 with special guest China Moses, the daughter of Dee Dee Bridgewater and internationally praised singer, and on Saturday, July 1 with a tribute to Brazilian music and its most significant composers.

The orchestra’s musicians will also bring to life several musical “spin-offs.”
