About this Event

The Louis Armstrong Continuum is a collaboration between Columbia’s Center for Jazz Studies and the Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation that focuses on Armstrong’s wide influence, both in music as such and in a life that provided a model of positive community action.

James Forbes, Wynton Marsalis, Rev. Mark Thompson and Michelle Miller.

Due to limited space we can only offer 2 tickets per person, per registration, per email address. DUPLICATES WILL BE DELETED.

Seating is very limited and admission is granted on a first-come, first-served basis with preference given to registered individuals. Advance registration does not guarantee seating so early arrival for registered guests is strongly suggested.  Due to the high expected attendance of this program, we will be simulcasting the evening 6:00pm panel discussion to an overflow space in a state of the art screening room in order to accommodate additional guests when the main event space has reached capacity.
