The Faubourg Quartet invites you to its annual charity Coats for Kids concert on Monday, November 19. The concert takes place at 7:00pm at St. Louis Cathedral, in New Orleans’ historic Jackson Square. Admission to the concert is free, but please consider bringing one clean coat (any size) to benefit Coats for Kids. Monetary donations are also welcome and much appreciated.
The Quartet will present an array of its members’ beloved favorites — a fun, eclectic mix including tango and jazz, as well as beautiful works by Schumann, Borodin, Charlie Parker, and The Beatles. Performing alongside the Faubourg Quartet will be faculty and students from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts’ Jazz department, plus many surprise guests.
As an added bonus, beginning at 6:15pm, students from NOCCA’s Classical Instrumental Department will welcome guests with a performance outside St. Louis Cathedral. Show support for New Orleans’ youth by coming early to hear this talented group!
