The Sounds of New Orleans

Irving’s annual concert series showcases live music performances by musicians from across the state. The 2017 series brings the music of New Orleans to Irving!  Multiple genres will be highlighted, including jazz, big brass, Cajun and more. Purchase authentic New Orleans food or bring a picnic meal from home. 

All shows run from 7 to 8:45 p.m.  Parking and admission are free. In the event of inclement weather, shows will be moved to an indoor location.  See details on the inclement weather plan at the bottom of the page.
Please Note:

  • Bring a blanket and/or lawn chair, as seating is not provided. 
  • Outside food and beverage are permitted, however there will be food vendors on-site and restaurants in the area.
  • Leashed, well-behaved dogs are permitted; owners are responsible for removing any waste. Please consider if the concert volume is suitable for your dog's sensitive ears.

Inclement Weather Plan

Concerts are rain or shine events.  If inclement weather creates a potentially unsafe outdoor environment, concerts will be  moved indoors to the Heritage Senior Center, 200 S. Jefferson St.
Attendees will still enjoy free parking and admission. Seating is provided at the Heritage Senior Center, so please leave your lawn chairs at home. While food vendors may be on-site in the parking lot, outside food is also allowed.  Note that no pets, alcohol or glass containers are permitted inside the building.

If the Inclement Weather Plan is put into effect for a concert, the listing above will be updated to indicate the change in venue.
