Master Classes

  ***Music In The Schools Workshops***

    We are Doreen=s Jazz New Orleans.  A truly authentic, show stopping traditional jazz band that has thrilled millions around the world from children to Dignitaries to U.S. Presidents.  We have taken our show on the road and have toured many of the fifty states.  We are not only putting on show stopping concerts but also visiting schools and universities raising uplifting, positive awareness of New Orleans, it=s music and it=s culture.  We have designed a program that not only describes the cultural gumbo of New Orleans but it also examines the many types of music that has developed in this great city.

   Our mission is to educate through interacting with our audiences.  The workshops are jam packed with information through demonstration of Jazz Funerals, Mardi Gras Indian chants, and the origins of the traditional music from Camp Meetings and spirituals through the French, Latin and Caribbean influences to today=s Funky Traditional and Street Jazz.  We have recently finished a multi  city tour of Elementary through High Schools and Universities that had the audiences on their feet singing and marching around.  Many attended multiple shows and raved about their >Doreen=s Jazz New Orleans= show experience.  We have also designed programs for special needs children, adults and the elderly.

 If you or someone you know may be interested in this show or one of our many other shows, please contact Lawrence Ketchens at: 504-908-7119 or 504-908-7114. You can also email: doreenja@bellsouth.net we have many references and reviews that give accounts of our wonderful work with young and old alike.   Thank you for your time and we hope to be hearing from you soon.
