St. James Infirmary
Thursday, May 25th, 2017
3030 Notre Dame
The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra presents the seventh annual
"St. James Infirmary Blues" concert, an exciting concert of New Orleans‐inspired big band music and fundraiser in support of the WJO recording fund. This spectacular concert will begin with the musicians of the WJO marching through the audience in performance of St. James Infirmary, a traditional song played at New Orleans funeral dirges, followed by Second Line, another traditional song played as the wake in celebration of the person's life. This is all the more appropriate in the unique and beautiful setting of the Neil Bardal Funeral Centre.
Joining the stage with the WJO at this unique and spectacular concert will be special guests who will have audience members more than tapping toes by the end of the show!
