The beloved New Orleans jazz singer Leah Chase will perform in a special event titled “Cabaret Tremé” at the Jazz & Heritage Center, Saturday, April 27, starting at 9:30 p.m. Admission is free.

World-renowned as a gifted interpreter of songs – and known to her fans as a hilarious storyteller – Chase will perform tunes that reflect many highlights from her eventful life.

Growing up in the Tremé neighborhood with famous parents – her late father, Edgar Lawrence “Dooky” Chase, Jr., was a well-known restaurateur, bandleader and civil rights activist; her mother, Leah Chase, is a celebrity chef an winner of many awards, including one from the James Beard Foundation – Leah attended Xavier Prep and Loyola University, earning a degree in vocal performance. She went on to study at the Julliard School in New York, but returned to New Orleans after a year. Following a stint of cabaret singing at the Chateau Sonesta, she moved to the West Coast and stayed for 12 years. Marriage, childbirth, divorce, the death of a sister in the 1990s and her return to New Orleans to help her mother run the restaurant, living in a FEMA trailer after Hurricane Katrina – all of these will be remembered through song.

In addition to her performing career, Leah maintains a busy schedule as an educator – currently teaching at Loyola University, Tulane University, the University of New Orleans, the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s Heritage School of Music.

One set only. Doors open at 9 p.m. No tickets or reservations required.
