This semester, concertgoers will be gathering in Audubon Park to enjoy smooth jazz and a summer breeze.

The reason for this gathering is the Loyola Alumni Jazz Jam, the second of four jazz concerts in the Music Under the Oaks showcase.

The series, sponsored by Bellwether Technology and presented by the Loyola College of Music and Fine Arts along with WWNO, a local radio outlet, consists of Loyola alumni and professors performing on the Newman Bandstand in Audubon Park.

Some Loyola Alumni Association members were present and were “thrilled to support its alumni whenever possible and proud to support the university, especially the College of Music and Fine Arts.”

The concert series is the first regular performance on Newman Bandstand in 50 years. The structure, raised in the early 1920s, is a popular wedding spot and has been included in a few films in New Orleans’ growing movie industry.

The series kicked off Sept. 5 with The John Mahoney Big Band, and will continue on Oct. 3 and 14 with the Loyola Faculty Chamber Concert and the Loyola Jazz Band.

Assistant Professor at Loyola University and member of The John Mahoney Big Band, Nic Volz, said he hopes the series will become a long term program, with regular performances.

The next show, Loyola Faculty Chamber Concert, is scheduled for Oct. 3.
