The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation recently held auditions for its free music school. Called the Don "Moose" Jamison Heritage School of Music, the program offers high level music instruction for students ages 10-17.
Students meet on Saturday mornings and train to perform at local festivals and venues. Producer Mallory Falk brings us this audio postcard from the audition.
Support for education reporting on WWNO comes from Baptist Community Ministries, Entergy Corporation, The Hechinger Institute, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
