WPI Jazz Groups is going to New Orleans!

We are excited to announce that WPI Jazz Groups will be traveling to New Orleans during the summer of 2023! In 2020, our trip to New Orleans was sadly canceled due to the pandemic. With travel restrictions lifted, we are bringing back this educational experience for WPI jazzers! We aim to make the New Orleans Trip available to every participating member by alleviating part of the financial burden. We’re asking for funds to help cover participating students’ airfare and kickstart our on-campus fundraising opportunities.
