New Orleans Jazz Fest Comes Full Circle With Its Mission

In the midst of two weekends that included dancing in the rain to The Dave Matthews Band, holding posters for New Orleans’ songbird Robin Barnes, eating pounds of crawfish pies, losing beer koozies, and anticipating Adam Levine’s abs and tattoos at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, its foundation by the same name announced plans that will bring its mission full circle, 43 years after inception. At the announcement Friday morning, foundation leaders and board members revealed that their new education and community center in the New Orleans Treme area, merely blocks away from the festival’s original site, will be named in honor of founder George Wein and his late wife and business partner, Joyce.
