Jazz At The Rat

The Newcomb Department of Music presents Jazz at the Rat

The Newcomb Department of Music furthers its mission of introducing students to New Orleans culture with Jazz at the Rat, a series of concerts held in City Diner (aka Der Rathskeller or The Rat), on the garden level of the Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC). Hosted and curated by jazz pianist and Newcomb Department of Music professor Jesse McBride, each live performance features accomplished New Orleans musicians, jazz legends, and visiting artists, accompanied by students and faculty from Tulane's Jazz Studies program. All concerts are free and open to the public.
