The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra presents St. James Infirmary Blues, an exciting concert of New Orleans‐inspired big band music and fundraiser in support of the WJO recording fund. This spectacular concert will begin with the musicians of the WJO marching through the audience performing St. James Infirmary, a traditional song played at New Orleans funeral dirges, followed by Second Line, another traditional song played at wakes in celebration of a person's life. This is all the more appropriate in the unique and beautiful setting of the Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, located across from Brookside Cemetery.
Joining the stage with the WJO will be special guests who will have audience members more than tapping toes by the end of the show. In addition to the music at this unique and spectacular concert, patrons will enjoy a complimentary glass of wine (cash wine bar also available) sponsored by Frontera Winery, light refreshments during intermission, the opportunity to win door prizes, a partial tax receipt and complimentary parking.
The number of tickets is limited. If you are unable to attend, the WJO will gratefully receive donations of any size.
Wines by Frontera. Dress is business casual. ALL TICKETS $65 (partial tax receipt)
