Festival Season

With summer around the corner, it is officially festival season in New Orleans! Last weekend was French Quarter Festival and Jazz Festival begins in exactly ten days.

Here at Loyola, today was a celebration known as Founder’s Fest, a Jazz Fest-style celebration right on Loyola’s Peace Quad. Musical acts featured the likes of the Stooges Brass Band, the Loyola University Jazz Band, Loyola’s own Lyle Henderson and Emmanu-El, and John Rankin, Loyola guitar and music industries studies instructor. Below is a photograph from the Loyola University Photographs Collection of former Loyola students relaxing in Jackson’s Square. Scenes like the one below are sure to be reenacted within the upcoming months.
