Atelier & Jam Ça!

The mission of the Dr. Tommy Comeaux Endowed Chair in Traditional Music at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is to stimulate research on traditional music worldwide and to advance its preservation, instruction, and performance. With the Chair's support, the School of Music now offers a B.A. in Music with a concentration in Traditional Music, as well as a music minor and individual classes that emphasize participatory music-making. So come make some music with us this weekend!
