The Gala

As night falls, come together for an elegant and extemporized mix of music, dancing, art, and illuminations at our inaugural Improvisations Gala.

Taking place throughout the New Orleans Jazz Museum from 8:00pm to 10:00pm, Improvisations features libations from Sazerac Company, gourmet local cuisine, a thrilling silent auction–featuring an exclusive artwork by Emilie Rhys, and entertainment by acclaimed musicians all set within the Luna Fete Celebration of Light and Music.

All proceeds from Improvisations will help the Jazz Museum to globally promote jazz as one of the most innovative, historically pivotal musical art forms through highly-interactive exhibits, as well as support ongoing musical and educational programming. Learn more about our expansion.
