D-Day 80th Commemoration Concert Series in New Orleans

Learn More

Commemorate the 80th Anniversary of D-Day in this Exclusive Concert Series in New Orleans throughout 2024

There is a strong connection between New Orleans and D-Day that can be felt and seen in the city. Many American boats that landed on the beaches of Normandy (known as Higgins Boats) were manufactured in New Orleans. The National WWII Museum, also located in New Orleans, is a state-of-the-art museum dedicated to the history and remembrance of those who fought valiantly in World War II.

The D-Day 80th Commemoration Concert Series includes destinations and musical experiences that remind participants of Franco-American ties and long friendships that date back to the American Revolution in 1776 . Influences from Spain, France, and West Africa are embedded in the music, cuisine, and style of New Orleans. These performance tours are supported by local government offices, community organizations, tourist boards, and the like. Such affiliations offer a more memorable musical, cultural and educational experience for recommended ensembles (both instrumental and vocal) to pay musical tribute to America’s Greatest Generation.
