One of the great things to do in New Orleans is to spend some time listening to the amazing jazz performed at Preservation Hall. The wonderful musicians and the incredible jazz they perform fill souls for quite a while.
Coming to Hot Springs Sept. 2-7 is the annual JazzFest and it is a musical treat not to be missed! All the things people love about jazz at Preservation Hall are extended for several days right here in Hot Springs, including Labor Day weekend.
One of my favorite performances is the Jazz Mass on Sunday morning at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The jazz during the service is very soulful and includes some traditional pieces such as “When the Saints Go Marching In.” I feel it is a service that any religious person would enjoy. For more information and a schedule go online to hsjazzsociety.org.
Highlights of the events for JazzFest include:
• Sept. 2 – “Sax in the Park”
• Sept. 3 – “S’Wonderful Dancin’”
• Sept. 4 – “Classical & Jazz Explosion”
• Sept. 5 – “Jazz in the Streets”
• Sept. 6 – “Jazz Mass”, “Jazz After Church”, “Stardust Tea Dance”
