To Our GlobalGiving Supporters -

On behalf of the Tipitina’s Foundation staff, I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you for your involvement and commitment to Instruments A Comin’. Your support proves your dedication in being a part of putting an instrument back in the hands of New Orleans music students.

The news of instruments from our supporters is becoming widely known, and touching many many hearts here. In the days ahead I look forward to sharing with you the name of the next school that will be the receiving new instruments. 

In the mean time, I hope you enjoy the pictures of jazz saxophonist and composer Donald Harrison, Jr. with the amazing Hailun grand piano that was donated this week to our Youth Jazz Internship Progam. In conjunction with the installation of the piano, Mr. Harrison will present a concert on November 16th in our new rehearsal space.

Together we can keep the music flowing through the streets of New Orleans, down the highways of Louisiana, and across the country, across the world.

With great appreciation of your continued support,
