Another favorite holiday tradition in New Orleans are choral concerts at the St. Louis Cathedral and St. Augustine Church.
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.
Home to the oldest African American Catholic congregation in the United States, St. Augustine Church is a landmark in the historic Tremé neighborhood and the entire city of New Orleans. Their holiday concerts span multiple genres, including jazz, gospel, and soul.
This FQFI Concert Series is produced by French Quarter Festivals, Inc. as part of Holidays New Orleans.
