A slice of the Big Easy in the Cistern

Is there a better way to kick off Spoleto’s 44th season than with the preeminent New Orleans jazz band in the Cistern Yard? On May 22, celebrate the ebullience, depth, and range of Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has delighted audiences for nearly 60 years. Under the leadership of Ben Jaffe, this rousing septet carries forward a sonic continuum that stretches back to the city’s beginnings and redefines what New Orleans music is today.

Programming at the College of Charleston Cistern Yard is kindly endowed by Carlos, Lisa, and Blake Evans.
