Mission Statement

New Orleans Jazz Celebration is a 501c3 nonprofit organization initiated by the Louisiana Music Commission in 1993 and incorporated as New Orleans Jazz Centennial Celebration, Inc. in 1994. Its mission is to preserve, promote, and perpetuate jazz, America's original art form, through educational outreach to audiences of all ages. NOJC's outreach focuses on youth and offers a wide array of informative and entertaining activities designed to spread the rich history of jazz and move the art form forward.

Description

Jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis, the patriarch of America's first family of jazz, announced the formation of NOJC at the 1994 International Association of Jazz Educators Annual Conference. Since then we have offered a wide array of informative and entertaining programs in the New Orleans area and throughout Louisiana designed to spread the rich history of jazz while showcasing the region's many jazz artists. We have also travelled internationally on several occasions to foster cultural exchange between artists and to raise international awareness of the cultural treasure that is American Jazz Music.
