Grammy-winner Ashlin Parker began studying trumpet at age 10 and earned his high school diploma from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where he studied classical trumpet. Parker was accepted into the University of New Orleans, completing a Masters of Music in 2009. Ashlin then began touring and recording with Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO), winning the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album. Now back in New Orleans, Parker regularly performs with the who's who of jazz musicians including the Uptown Jazz Orchestra, Ellis Marsalis and Herlin Riley. All performances will be at half the normal audience capacity, creating an even more intimate listening experience. Covid mandates will be honored with masks required and social distancing. With the limited seating, it is advised that you get your tickets early!
