This weekend, Jazz Fest took place in New Orleans, LA. As USA Today mentioned “Indulging one niche may be the modern festival formula, but it doesn’t apply to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which expects huge crowds this year with a bill that accommodates Simon & Garfunkel, Drake, My Morning Jacket, Ledisi, Terence Blanchard, Smokie Norful, Better Than Ezra, Grandpa Elliott and Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. & the Zydeco Twisters.” The 41st edition of Jazz Fest will take place Friday-Sunday (April 29-May 2), and will open its gates to what Quint Davis, the show’s producer and director, calls their “wheels-to-wheels” demographic, “everyone from strollers to wheelchairs.”

The Boston Children’s Chorus prides itself on having a diverse lineup of music ranging from cultural to modern. This would be a perfect format for a new concert because it would reach a wide variety of listeners and create a learning atmosphere for the singers. The chorus prides itself on One of The Boston Children’s Chorus’ goals is to increase their concert attendance. By creating a concert similar to Jazz Fest would increase attendance because the songs would create a more diverse line up and from that create a more diverse interest in the concert.
