The New Orleans Traditional Jazz Camp was originated by Leslie Cooper, Banu Gibson, and Anita Hemeter. Their love for the music inspired the idea for a camp to be held in New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz. The camp project gained momentum when these three found they had the same passion to create such a camp. Their mission statement:
- To teach and perpetuate the musical style of early jazz music as it originated in New Orleans.
- To create a yearly musical event in New Orleans that will raise the level of musicianship and knowledge of early jazz.
- To expose traditional jazz to a larger audience.
- To attract musicians from around the world to NOLA to learn traditional jazz.
Join us for a morning of FREE music from these happy campers!!!!
