New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, New Orleans, LA

Goldman Sachs is a key partner in the transformation of the historic Dryades Market building in Central City, New Orleans into the new permanent home for the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO).

Originally constructed in 1849, the New Orleans Jazz Market includes administrative offices, a 350 seat acoustically-designed community jazz hall, a digital archive, classrooms, and practice and recording studios.

In addition to helping NOJO expand its performance schedule and strengthen its relationship to the community, the revitalized building also contributes to the ongoing rehabilitation of the city’s historic commercial corridor. NOJO partners with other leading community organizations, including the New Orleans Jazz Institute and the New Orleans Public Library Foundations, on educational programming and technology offerings accessible to community residents.
