Another favorite holiday tradition in New Orleans are choral concerts at St. Louis Cathedral. Fronting on Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter, the historic St. Louis Cathedral plays host to an annual holiday tradition of staging free concerts by prominent New Orleans musicians, church choirs, and singers in the jazz, classical, gospel, and pop genres. Within the Gothic splendor of one of America’s oldest and most architecturally significant churches, the acoustics lend an air of reverence to the performances.
Situated in the historic Central City neighborhood, Ashé Powerhouse Theater is a cultural hub rooted in the legacy of the modern civil rights movement in New Orleans. In its inaugural year as a Holidays New Orleans Style concert location, the series spans multiple genres exploring the African diaspora, including Cuban jazz, Haitian folk, gospel, and soul.
This Holidays New Orleans Style Concert Series is produced by French Quarter Festivals, Inc. as part of Holidays New Orleans.
