On July 31, the Swing Dolphins—a Japanese youth jazz ensemble—will land in New Orleans. Their arrival is part of the New Orleans-Miyagi Youth Jazz Exchange, a program that connects Japanese and New Orleans youth through a shared love of music. During their visit, the New Orleans public will have multiple chances to enjoy the talents of these young musicians. The Swing Dolphins will give performances at WWL-TV studios, Satchmo Summer Fest, the Steamboat Natchez landing, and Tipitina’s Uptown.
