The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation, Inc., held a fundraising gala “Celebrating the Heritage School of Music” on Thursday, October 17, at the home of Mary and Bill Hines.

Perennial Jazz Fest favorite Henry Butler performed, ensuring a musically magical night for all. The Heritage School of Music will open its doors right next to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation headquarters in the historic Tremé neighborhood, and will feature seven classrooms designed for music education and a 200-seat performance hall for local and touring acts.

The party provided an opportunity for those involved in the community to meet some of the leadership behind the Jazz Fest Foundation and to learn more about what these leaders are working to bring to New Orleans. Dr. Sid Bhansali, Mary Clare and Danny Conwill and Walton and Jeff Goldring joined the Hines to host the evening fostering goodwill between the movers and shakers of New Orleans and the minds behind New Orleans’ biggest music festival.
