Music is a magical gift we must nourish and cultivate in our children.  So help us to support music education and scholarships for our children.
A Jazz In The Arts Presentation

​Summer Youth Jazz Workshop

Taylor Goss, Austin Ledoux, Ian Trahan and Sam DeSantos are four
exceptional Tipitina's Internship-Lake Charles students that have been
accepted into Berklee College of Music's Five-Week Summer
Performance Program. They are all very talented in their instrument
and all four students have received partial scholarships but still need
assistance with tuition, room and board, travel, and living expenses
while in Boston.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime that will help give them a chance
to learn with peers from all over the world, gain more knowledge and
training, and allow them to receive college credits.

We are asking that you help us to support these four young men in
achieving this great opportunity of learning. Thanking you in advance for
your support.
