Flamenco Rouge with LSU Dance Ensemble

Flamenco Rouge Fundraiser- Help Send LSU Students to Spain

Event DetailsPurchase Tickets

Jácome Flamenco was formed by virtuoso guitarist and composer, Chris Jácome. The unbridled energy, inspiration and excitement of Jácome Flamenco’s singers, dancers and musicians take audiences on a whirlwind journey of Andalucía. You feel the rhythm, hear the song, smell the wine and see the beauty of a distant culture encouraging you to join in. The art of flamenco explodes onstage and audience shouts of “Olé!” become part of the experience, part of the passion of flamenco.

Flamenco artists Chris and Lena Jacome will delight audience members with music and dance. Performance will also include LSU Dance Ensemble. A portion of the proceeds will go towards providing financial support for LSU Student who will study in Spain in 2015.

Manship Theatre will launch Dance Speaks using its 2014-15, Dance Season as a platform for public education on HIV/AIDS. For the first time in its history, the Theatre will dedicate its entire season to raise awareness and fundraising focused on children who perinatally acquired the infection. All of the companies on the Season’s upcoming roster are thrilled to be involved, and most of them have participated in similar campaigns throughout the country and with the organization Dancers Responding to AIDS. Funding for Dance Speaks will be raised through targeted marketing campaigns, post-concert curtain speeches and donation campaigns by performers. All the funds will be directed to sending local patients to Camp Hope, a one-week summer camp established for HIV-positive children aged 7 to 15.

Event DetailsPurchase Tickets

Delfeayo Marsalis is one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Known for his “technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor…” (Leonard Feather, Los Angeles Times), he is “…one of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation.” (Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner.) In January 2011, Delfeayo and the Marsalis family (father Ellis and brothers Branford, Wynton and Jason) earned the nation’s highest jazz honor – a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award. He has composed over 80 songs that help introduce kids to jazz.



The Uptown Jazz Orchestra was formed in 2008 to bring the traditional riff and blues sounds to school students in the New Orleans area. Performing blues and standards that combine riff-playing, spontaneous arrangements and the New Orleans 2nd-line groove, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra keeps the old school jazz traditions alive. Under the direction of trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, UJO consists of 90% Louisiana native musicians who range in experience from young students to respected veterans.


This event will be the Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre and is a part of the Arts Council's Jazz Listening Room series.

Arts Council of Baton Rouge Presents: Jazz Listening Room with Stephanie Jordan

A new voice stands up and proclaims itself with supreme depth and understated soul.

Event DetailsPurchase Tickets

Jazz at Lincoln Center notes, "every so often a new voice stands up and proclaims itself, but few do so with such supreme depth and understated soul..." as vocalist Stephanie Jordan.



After Hurricane Katrina, Stephanie convened with a host of highly regarded singers to perform a benefit relief concert for the victims of the catastrophic storm. On that memorable night; none sang with greater authority or emotional resonance than New Orleans native, Stephanie Jordan, who enthralled the packed house and a national PBS / NPR audience of millions with an ascendant reading of “Here’s To Life.”

Bill Milkowski of JazzTimes Magazine writes, “Stephanie Jordan, a standout here, was the real discovery of the evening. Her haunting rendition of this bittersweet ode associated with Shirley Horn was delivered with uncanny poise and a depth of understated soul that mesmerized the crowd and registered to the back rows.”

The voice of Lena Horne served as Stephanie’s first introduction to great jazz singers and she has had the privilege of working directly with Shirley Horn as her mentor. As the daughter of saxophonist Edward “Kidd” Jordan, Stephanie’s musical roots run deep. Stephanie Jordan is the fifth performer to emerge from this family of New Orleans musicians.


This event will be the Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre and is a part of the Arts Council's Jazz Listening Room series.
