How Music Changed

    Our last show dedicated to Louis Armstrong starts in an improbable place and ends in a sadly inevitable place. As we open, Louis is sitting on top of the hit parade in the midst of Beatlemania.

    His handlers struggled with a means to maintain his newfound momentum, while Louis' health grew steadily worse, until he ultimately passed away. While sad, there is so much to celebrate about Louis' life- his achievements, and his ebullient nature- that it is almost impossible to not get caught up in the life-affirming spirit of his final days.
